Boat House, Irvine Park 9" x 12" pastel


The boat house is a neat little building that houses all the peddling boats at Irvine Park.  It sits at the far end of the small lake and is a basic rectangle building.  It has a lot of roof that catches the light nicely.  It is difficult to compose.  There is either the building and tall trees or the buildings and a lot of lake.  Today there were very nice reflections and so I picked the lake to work on leading to the boat house.  It was so pleasant under the trees.  It was a wonderful day.  The photo has toned down the color more than I like, so I uploaded another one with a color adjustment.  Somewhere between the two is the true color, leaning toward the top one.  The roof has more of a coral color to it.  One of these days I will learn the photo editing program.

Dori, great job on the back ground trees. Toning them down really worked. Another fun day!

I like that one too. And I think it is true or very close. The water was hypnotic. So many colors.
