Mid November, Prospect Park
While walking along the fenced-in path past the ballfields and the lakes by The Ravine, I happened to glance backwards and snapped one single photograph of this beautiful reflection and vista. The photo became the basis for this test-out-all-the-brushes painting. The brush arsenal now includes three shapes of scrubbers and I used them all for the water reflections and branches. The effect adds a touch of realism, but I’d be just as satisfied if the viewer sees only beautiful brushstrokes.
