    Disturbed Reflections

    Hey, everyone. This is probably the first painting I've done in my life (I may have done one when I was in the 4th grade, but I'm not 100% sure). It took some guts to put this thing up here and even more guts to put my signature on it! I used a limited colour palette with 4 blues (new colours were created with the palette knife) and a pure white. I also limited my tools to a normal and wet palette knife and three different-sized oil brushes. I wanted to eliminate the background so people could focus on the water and clouds, but I don't know if I'm breaking some fundamental rule of art. Are there any rules in art?

    Welcome and I applauded your courage to post your work.... a nice painting the clouds and colors are well done... It is a good idea to limit your colors when starting out so you can really get a understanding of how they work together.... hope we see much more from you in the future...
