This is a short preview from a  full length video that is  all about painting a beautiful fall scene with cottonwoods and pond reflections. We used a split complementary palette, starting with very vivid colors and tempering the color towards the final stages of the painting for more realism.  I painted mine on a 14 x 18 Centurian oil primed linen.  My ground was Indian Yellow.
