Cesky Krumlov Canel View

This is for Virtual Paintout May 2015, Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic challenge. It's oil on 10x12 canvas panel.

The center of Cesky Krumlov is quite a beautiful town, and many artist at VP found many wonderful views to paint. With every corner one turns, there is another beautiful view. I came upon this side street, with beautiful blue sky and water reflection, contrasting the bright house with the terra cotta color roof. (ref) Starting with a black ground, I kept the brush strokes relatively loose, and stopped when I felt the light / shadow and color contrasts were achieved.
