Breaking the rules is one of the joys of art and it opens the door for the artist to explore and innovate. That said, there are times when knowing the rules helps with problem solving.
Activity: Keeping a log of your direct observations, record details of life and what you see.
And my handwritten notes typed below:
1. In still water reflections appear as a mirror image.
2. In moving water, reflections break up and appear longer than the objects they reflect. Ripples become smaller, darker and closer together as they recede away from the object. (Throw a pebble in the water and watch the ripples)
3. An object in the water that leans away from you will appear to have a shorter reflection, but an object leaning toward you will have a longer reflection.
4. Reflections of dark objects usually appear slightly lighter in value; reflections of light objects appear slightly darker.
