Painting Water, River in a Landscape by Peder Monsted

http://www.allartclassic.com/ - See how Danish artist Peder Monsted painted river's waters in his beautiful landscape painting "Stream in the Woods".
The painter applies very light brushstrokes on top of darker waters, these are the tiny ripples that a river forms, when flowing among stones. In such motifs, mainly built around still water, trees and forest, Monsted shows his masterhood in portraying the sunlight between tree crowns and the network of trunks of the under-wood, the reflections on the water of forest and sunny sky.
