My plan was to paint a watercolor with mostly neutral colors and add a touch of yellow which I hoped would create a glow amongst the neutrals. The yellow ochre area started off as a piece of land, but with all the wet-in-wet I was doing, I thought it looked better as a water feature so I added a dark bank in the foreground and some reflections in the distance. By reducing the yellow area it also enhanced what little color remained. I think I will try this again and vary the scenes. I like the soft effect I achieved in this piece.
