Sam’s Song

This boathouse is situated on a narrow channel between two lakes so the water is always pretty calm. I have taken many photos of this but never painted it and now I know why. When the water is this calm it’s a mirror! And the reflections are damn hard to paint!! A few ducks swam by but that wasn’t really enough to make things easier for me. You can never count on those birds.

    Stunning reflections! This was a two and a half point effort. My scoring goes like this…
    1 point for snowscapes – after all, you only paint half a picture
    2 points for a typical landscape – you usually only half paint the foreground… maybe green with a few shadows… or you do an easy sky
    3 points for reflections – seems only fair because you have to paint the hard bit twice.
    Sorry, I took off half a point on this one for the dodgy perspective which is more obvious when you do reflections. : )

  2. Amazing Shari,
    You made it look like glassy water. Great!
