Golden hour


Lovely painting Ron

"A joyful use of colour" is how I'd describe this, Ron. The blue of the water is particularly beautiful. Lovely reflections too.

Looks lovely Ron, and you’ve captured the river and it’s subtleties very well.

Thank you Heather, Marjorie and Tessa

Lovely painting Ron.

Lovely, Ron. So many beautiful areas.

Excellent. Love your choice of rich colours.

Lovely painting Ron, I particularly like the way you have painted the far bank.

Lovely reflections

Just beautiful, gorgeous palette, Ron

Thank you for all your great comments. Some of my 'critics' have suggested removing the yellow bush, so I may add the revised painting to the gallery.

Oil on canvas, 18x18in. A scene captured on a local river during that golden hour when the sun is going down. Fortunately the sun was shining directly on a small tree on a rocky outcrop in a shallow part of the river. The painting was a challenge in capturing the mid-ground shallows with the submerged rocks and branches and then to merge them with the reflections from the opposite bank. The sunlight not only highlighted the tree foliage but the sediment in the shallows.
