This particular painting was inspired by the beautiful glitter on the morning water that made the whole area shimmer with warmth. I was very interested in the patterns the reeds made in contrast to the water and the strong 'swales' or choppy water the gusting wind made. Although I did not see a loon at this particular moment, I instantly envisioned a low riding loon cutting his way through the surging water amongst the reeds. It is little instances in my life like these that inspire the work I create back in the studio.
In this art lesson we will learn how to compose a piece using multiple references and inspiration. We will also learn how to take reference that has different lighting effects and create a new image that looks natural to the setting. Most of all we will learn how to take complex choppy water and break it down into manageable sections and create very detailed water patterns.
