18 x 24 oil on panel
Hey fellas, This is my latest painting "Mirror Lake". Making this painting was a very different experience. I made a lot many changes to my reference photo in order to get this painting right.
The reference photo was very intriguing to me, however there were a couple things I wanted to change.
- 1. I did not like the dull grey sky. It was setting in a very gloomy mood.
- 2. I was not very happy with the color scheme either. Again it appeared very dull to me.
I knew I wanted to paint this but with a few changes :). And here is what I did...
In order to get rid of the dull grey I introduced a mountain in place of the sky. And also changed the color scheme a little bit. I majorly used a blue-green palette with a touch of yellow to set in the bright happy mood. Using a limited color range makes all elements work in perfect harmony with "minimal" effort. All in all, it was a good learning experience.
Thank you for visiting. I hope you had a good read.
