Ogle Lake

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI love to paddle my canoe. There’s nothing like gliding across a lake, listening to the ripples caused by my boat and watching the water drip from my paddles.  This painting is my attempt to portray the atmosphere I feel when I’m out there.  Two things that add to the painting — complimentary color: the red canoe versus the green lake.  Also atmospheric perspective.  The person on the left is painted larger than the one on the right, giving the illusion that she’s closer.
