November 21, 2009 - Day 103

Acrylic on Strathmore linen canvas

My goal with today's painting was to create more accurate colors. I used my photo editing program to isolate the different colors in the water so that I could see what they were. I was surprised to find that most of the water was a very dark green that in places was almost black. I found it really difficult to paint the water green. My logical mind kept saying ""but water is blue". In this case, it wasn't blue it was green.
