Dancing Light, 12x16, acrylic
The whole reason for painting this image was to try and capture the light bouncing like diamonds on the water. I first used a warm yellow orange colour and built up to the light. I was trying to get a bit of a glow. I also used my finger to smudge some edges to get a reflective quality in the water. I kept the blues quite strong to help with the feeling of a bright day. We like to rent a boat and explore the islands around Howe Sound it gives a very different perspective being on the water.
