Autumn Pond

This is a pond near my house that I thought was a perfect representation of autumn.  I painted it in class so I could get some instruction along the way about brushstrokes and values.  I like the way it turned out, but I cannot take full credit for the water or the tree in the back--that is where I got most of my help.
