Autumn on the Canal, step 5

I finished up the first color layer by painting in the reflections.  I lowered the tree line in the far distance to allow more sky. I felt it was important to have some sky reflections in the water to add interest and break of the area. 

To paint the reflections I used vertical strokes and then added a few horizontal blending strokes to suggest the movement of the water. 

The next steps will be refining what I have done to bring it up as close to a finish as possible. There are probably many parts of this painting that are finished. There are also parts that need work.
