Plein Air California Landscape

I painted this landscape today on a 9"x12" mahogany luan panel; it's called : "Reflecting Pool Revisited". I was particularly fascinated by the tree's reflection in the water and the edges between the tree's reflection and the water.

I started with a varnish wash, then proceeded to apply thicker paint, alternating transparency and opacity.

The colors used were: Prussian blue, carbazole violet, ultramarine blue, cobalt blue, cadmium green, hansa yellow orange, cadmium yellow orange, cadmium orange, transparent red oxide, cadmium yellow medium, cadmium yellow light, and titanium white.
