People have asked how this painting was done: the answer is very simple. It was done in layers. The bottom of the pool was painted first...just the dead leaves, as if they weren't underwater. Then a transparent layer of brown was used to put a glaze layer on, indicating the tree reflections. And, finally, a scumble of semi-opaque blue was used to indicate the sky, more opaque towards the bottom. Voila! Try it, you'll have fun and be amazed.

This painting shows a very clear understanding of light and shadow.

Wow! I don't know how you pulled this off, but it's perfection!
