Tow path water and reflections, Lambertville, NJ

An AHA moment.

Back in the studio in Brooklyn, I took advantage of a new 27″ iMac to enlarge my photographs of the tow path in Lambertville to use as reference. Undertaking this painting seemed quite daunting at the time—the large size and subject—but I gradually understood the reflections and the play of light. I consider this an important, pivotal work, an aha moment, when I discovered watercolor as a way to paint water, light and reflections.
