Shaanxi Lake, China

Landscape oil painting: Via Shaanxi Lake, by Barry John Raybould
Cat. No. 1233 Shaanxi Lake, by Barry John Raybould, 40cm x 50cm, Oil on Canvas

This was a very peaceful lake in Northern China in a province where people still live in caves dug into the cliff face. In fact I was living in one when I painted this!

In this video on one of my plein air painting trips in China, I talk about some ideas on composition when plein air painting. I also give some tips on how to paint reflections in the water.
