I found this subject in the charming town of Harrisville New Hampshire while on a painting trip through New England. The painting is the subject of one of my tutorials and I am pointing out the different washes and how they work in the painting. If you go to my website dennispendleton.com you can check out the tutorials. To add to the feeling of serenity, I decided not to include the trees on the distant bank and only painted their reflections in the water. The band of red on the boat was exciting to paint because it is the complement of all those greens in the reflections.
