Into the Light

Oil on board 15 x 20 cm
I honestly thought that I had blinded myself painting this one, I was looking right into the sun and it was reflecting up off the water, "contre-jour" big time.  It was very beautiful but possibly the peaceful early morning was a bit broken by the shambling stumbling figure that staggered back along the pontoon.  Luckily I didn't fall in and my eyesight has returned to nearly normal!

This painting is beautiful.. I swear, I'm probably in love with that tree up on top (: Keep on painting, you're doing a divine job! I was wondering, as I have never painted in oils.. How similar is it to acrilics or watercolors? Thanks! (:

Easier than Acrylics, faster than watercolours, give them a go Kyrie.
Thanks for your words too.
