Reflection in Paint by kach-back Reflection in Paint by kach-back
Watercolour
36 x 26 cm (14 x 10 in)
Completed spring 2008

This watercolour was painted by me from a very good photograph taken by a friend of mine. It is of the Lake Michigan shoreline in St. Joseph Michigan. One challenge with the painting seems to be to figure out how many different animals appear in the clouds.

Thanks, many people commented about how many animals they could see floating around in that sky. :-) The waves were a bit odd for me as I tend not to paint moving things frozen very often. I just wanted you to see the clouds and how I handled the sky overall. :nod:

In all fairness I could have explained it better for sure. When I first did that painting and uploaded it to dA, there were people from all over guessing at what animals I hid in the cloud patterns.

I do like your favorite smiley very much, I could use that around here quite often. :D

I kept looking thinking "I don't see any animals" it's been a while since I looked at clouds and tried to see animal shapes :D

I used it a lot in the beginning when I didn't know anything about how this site worked :giggle:

Well I remember that the most one person saw was eleven but it is stretching things a bit. I honestly did not plan any at all when I worked on it.

Like most things dA is an acquired knowledge base, I am still learning the different emoticons again, that's why I am so sparse with mine. :shrug:

:laughing: that's really funny, I'll have to go back now and have a look, see how many I can find :D

Some emoticons confuse me because I don't know how to use them, the words you see when you hover over them are sometimes not the words you need to type, I wonder where they keep the manual :giggle:

I think you should, I even did and I saw a bunch, I will give you a bit of a hint, several dogs, a unicorn, and we will see what else you see in it. :clap:

Well I am no pro with emoticons, I click on the link in the lower left, and search alphabetically to try to get what I need. I think if I had lots of time I would make up my own though, I know it's not that hard, could be kind of fun to do. :dance:

I am going to take that picture of my yard so you get an idea of it. :D
