A Boat in Vietnam (oil painting #5)

A smaller scale oil painting~in order not to use too much oil paint...
cos I tend to use a large amount of paint and oil paints are ex~
Trying to capture the reflections and flow of the water and an attempt on depicting the human figure.

The original photo (taken during Vietnam CIP trip)

final painting

a relatively realistic depiction of the boy, though more details could be included...

yup, thick paints that took forever to dry for the leaves.
(sorry, camera couldn't focus)

Focus: light on water
