In the deep end.

                       Shallows   Oils on canvas board  7 x 5 inches   

In this painting I was aiming for an ethereal look and a trail of colour to suggest reflections in the water. 

Wading into colour and light I painted parts of this three times before I was really happy with the work. Eventually I decided to leave it alone before it was too late.

I like the blues and oranges with flourishes of Naples yellow brushed loosely across to add sparkle and finish to the piece.
