Peirce Reservoir

To be precise this was Upper Peirce Reservoir where I spent an afternoon hanging around because I happened to have 2 hours to spare. Sketching has helped me to pay closer attention to the varying shades of green and take note of the reflections on the water and how they change over time. I also came to realise that the surface of the water responds differently to light and wind conditions.

Nothing beats what the eye is able to see. That is why I do not like to paint from photographs. I would love to set up an easel one day and paint this on site. Someday...
