Painting water reflections seen through blades of grass.

Mist is rising from the slightly breeze kissed  water. The mist softens the forms of the grass. 55" long and 38" wide keeping the acrylic damp was possible because of the coastal mist and high humidity. The humidity dictates the way I paint outdoors especially on large canvases.

In the tidal waters there should be no surprise in catching a crab with a worm.
On this 18" square canvas I spent most of my time painting the grass because the blades tended to disappear in the lively sparkling waters. I also used acrylic on this painting begun on a less humid sunny day.

Great paintings, especially the reflections through grass, really took me into the place.

Thanks Celia, I feel the grass and the lighted sky talking to one another.

I like the reflections and grass. Awesome colors and the feel of water. Lovely but it captures also the energy

I think you have captured the reflections very well.
