Lake Waccamaw

Over Memorial Day Weekend we visited Lake Waccamaw near Wilmington, NC. It was an overcast day so the sky offered some interesting colors. This is a very shallow lake - the kids and I walked nearly 100 yards into the lake before the water got too deep. This allowed the bottom of the lake to be faintly seen in the picture from which this painting is depicted.

I really like the water effects on this painting. Eileen remarked that there is not enough contrast with the land mass and water, and I think she is right. However I think I hit the nail on the head with two of the three elements in painting the sky and water.
