Today's painting uses the warm Autumn palette, and a rich greenish blue for the water. Today, I studied the amazing art of Joaquin Sorolla, a Spanish painter born in the 1800's and died in 1923. A master colorist, he painted rich shadows, luminous skin tones, and was masterful in his treatment of water. I am in awe. Check out his amazing body of work. http://www.joaquin-sorolla-y-bastida.org/
You could say this painting was influenced somewhat, by his exquisite work.
