This was an ambitious one for me but has a lot of good stuff in it. We were visiting our friends Mark and Geneen and Geneen mentioned that the pond up the road was beautiful and I might like to take a look at it for a painting. She was definitely right and frankly I haven't managed to do it justice here. The reflections on the water are magical and we managed to catch a heron perching on the large rock in the evening sun.
A couple of intermediates :
The initial washes.
Almost there here. Especially pleased with the foliage.
