Water Parade Reflection

This is for Word Press May 2010 challenge. It's oil on 8"x10" canvas board.

The reference photo for this challenge is Rose Festival in Portland Oregon, there are some parade boats on a river. I thought the picture was very busy, but what caught my eye the most was the water and the reflection of one of the boat's tail. So I decided to paint a semi abstract painting, of the water and the reflection. The boat's tail had bright red and white stripes, looking almost like a Chinese dragon boat. That's why there's red and white mixed in the water reflection.
