Pond reflections

Pond reflections
10" X 10", Acrylic on canvas




This is a semi abstract pond painting. The horizontal and vertical lines create a patchwork design effect. It gives more definition and abstract quality to the artwork. This work was inspired by artwork of artist Paul Klee.



I also divided the composition vertically using the strong orange and green. The bright red amid the variety of greens creates a nice contrast.  The busy pond is full of waterlily pads diminishing in size with the distance. This adds to the linear perspective.



The whole painting is focussed more on design. It certainly isn't realism. I would term it more playful, creative and imaginary.
