Secret River by tonyhurst Secret River by tonyhurst
This is my first attempt at painting reflections in water believe it or not! Once again I went through that crap stage when I thought the painting was not working for me, there are things I still do not think work well enough - but someone told me once that a painting can be ruined by you saying 'I'll just do this!'.

I had to make some of my own custom brushes for the reflections on the water surface as just painting every single one didn't seem to have the randomness I liked.

Overall I am pleased with the outcome and more importantly I have learnt some new things I will take forward into future work.

Hope you like.
