Autumn Trees Reflections in a Pool - watercolor painting

Reflections of autumn trees in a poolOn my last walk at the Nature Preserve, I was struck by this intimate scene of a small pool formed by one of the many streams.

Pools like this fascinate me because of the many image layers. First there is the layer that shows the surface of the water on which lie the floating leaves and the water ripples. Then there is the reflection of the trees which makes the water seem like a mirror. Finally, because the water is clear, there is the suggestion of rocks and pebbles at the bottom of the pool.

I've tried to capture all these image layers in this piece.
