Yazoo Pass Flat Bottom Boat

Originally uploaded by Tommy the Artist.
This is the final composition for the Yazoo Pass Flat Bottom Boat painting. The idea was for the eye to have a path to follow from the boat along the reflection of the cypress tree to the reflections in the water on the upper left of the photo. The day the photo was taken was hot and sultry thus the choice of dark and warm greens and yellows contrasted with the cool blues and grays in the boat colors and in the water in the left lower portion of the panting. A small amount of sky reflection was included in the water in the lower left of the scene to be painted. The painting is complete and will be shown here soon. Stay tuned.
