Thank you for checking back with me this week!
My commissioned piece is complete! This painting was one that I could not put down!
Once I added the trees and the their reflection on the canal water, it became clear to me, the time of day was changing to later evening at sunset. I added warm pinks and corals to the sky and reflected those tones on the canal water. The reflection of the clock tower beyond the bridge added to the depth and stillness of the water. The boats and their reflection quietly resting for the night on a still and calm canal. The bicycles propped up on the side of a building and the warm glow of a streetlight makes this Amsterdam Canal neighborhood a place to discover!
