Perfect Day by AnnMarieBone Perfect Day by AnnMarieBone
Oil on canvas 16x16inches

I painted this after seeing a wonderful photograph by Dennis Chunga, called the Housatonic River. He kindly agreed to let me use it as a reference. Much artistic licence used here, but I hope I've caught the essence!

Check out the original photograph and Dennis Chunga's fantastic gallery here:-

Wow, splendid! The mix of colors, the blue against the reds and oranges of the leaves and the sky reflection adds warmth to this scene. Truly a nice work of art.

After much very pleasant time looking at your talents, I've decided that this is my favourite. The reflections, and the reflected sky in particular, are just stunning and so accurately real :eyepopping:

Beautiful composition again! My wife and I were lucky enough to live in the Lake District for a few years before moving to NZ and this picture reminds me of one of the lake walks we used to take. I am assuming this is an Autumnal interpretation as the trees are what immediately caught my attention as Autumn is also one of my favourite times of the year, when, to me, the planet shows us a magical palette of colour before the onset of Winter. I particularly like the way you are taken further into the picture by the tree line and again the reflections in the water to those mountains in the background. The clouds reflected in the water are beautifully created, again allowing your eye to meander around the whole picture, and taking in all the finer details. Your work is something to go back to time and again to fully appreciate all the aspects as I find myself seeing more as I am signing off.
Thank you again for sharing this inspirational picture.
Simon

I used the reference photo that is mentioned below the painting and the photographer did not say anyone else had painted it before so I do not know of any other painting. Perhaps you could look through your favourites and tell me as I would be interested to see!

Eh it must be a false alarm.
I looked through my various pictures and didn't find a doppelganger.

Though I sworn I had Favorited before, such a fine work.
