Autunm Lake Near Boston

Autumn Lake Near Boston(9x7 soft pastel)

This was done for the January Virtual Paintout hosted by Bill Guffey. This month he chose to send us to Boston and the surrounding areas. Thanks for another great challenge Bill!

I chose this location for my painting, a lake on Forest Grove near Boston. The fall colours and light and reflections caught my eye.

I am not a landscape painter but want to try and get better at this type of painting and so I am trying to practice. This is version 2. The colours are richer in real life and it looks better if you stand back from it at least 5 feet. The black squares are the texture of the mi tentes paper.
