There are magical moments you just don’t want to end. This painting puts me there as I can look at It and forget all about time. Do you hear the peaceful lake, the sound of birds, and feel the sparkling light?
Yellow Green and Red Violet are key to this painting as they make the palette sparkle. In tiny amounts, those two colors pop everything. It is so easy to get too much of them. Look for the Magenta in the underpainting by the reeds. You do see pink again but it is tinted. There is more Yellow Green as color dominance is so much more interesting.
