I wanted to try my hand at some more minimalist landscapes. As this one developed I used the same palette of blues, greens and white to form the sky and water but used tapping strokes in the sky in a kind of modified scrumble I hadn’t done before. Them I mirrored the colors with straight up and down stokes smoothed out and blended using a touch of water instead of the mere pressure that formed the sky. Once sky and water were in place adding the tree line and reflections was easy.  I finished the land line with a few touches of gold and red.
