The Pool

Acrylic on Canvas Board Ω
Another in a many visited subject, mostly because it has (a) reflections, (b) I'm painting from a shady spot by the barn, and (c) it's hot in Sonoma, so I can jump in any time. Bonus: since I'm using acrylics, I can also jump in if I get paint on myself. I do. Often.
It's hard to tell what the focus is, because I didn't really decide on one. Way too  much going on with no real point. A little paint-by-numbers looking in the end. And what are those long white reflections in the pool supposed to be? Phantom umbrellas?
