Pond 4 (Tuesday afternoon)

Having got the water to a reasonable standard (still needs extra blue towards the bottom of the picture) I can move onto the reeds and grass at the edge of the pond. It's difficult to get the right effect at this scale..usually my works are much bigger and therefore each blade can be acuratley depicted. Here I need to use an almost hazy impression to convey the reeds, and hopefully the deeper shades in the background will almost take shape on their own.
