Day #6

                                                                   5 x 7 oil on board  

I utilized a technique called pointillism to achieve the shimmer in the water on this painting.  It is a neo-impressionist principle in which small dots of pure color are juxtaposed side by side to achieve the desired colors.  The viewer's eye then does the blending.
