Kinmen Pond and Sky

This is for Virtual Paintout August 2014 challenge. It's oil on 10x12 canvas panel.

This is the last day of the challenge, but there was one scene I really wanted to paint. (Ref) I wanted to capture the cloud and sky and their reflections, the bright green patches of vegetation, and brownish orange of algae floating on the pond. So I kicked up all the color and contrast to make more dramatic. I did this one relatively quickly, in about three hours.
