In part five we start to paint our reflection and learn how create a 'ripple' effect in our water and how to paint a 'murky' look.
In this part we start to add movement to our water. We learn how to use line and direction to create a soft 'flow' to our water textures.
In this part we start to add high detail to the water to create a subtle 'swirl' effect. We finish detail in the foreground and start on the background.
In this final part of the loon tutorial we add the foreground reeds to break up the composition and add depth to a minimal painting.
