This is one of my favorite paintings, I should probably keep it for myself and frame it. It has all of my favorite features: water reflections, fall foliage, interesting tree shapes, and dramatic lighting. I also used the point of the brush handle to scrape out the tree trunks on the opposite side of the lake. That's normally hard to do with acrylic because it dries so quickly, but if you're quick or mist the paint with water to keep it wet, it can be done. The original painting is available.
