"Reflexes on the water" shows at the upper edge of the riparian zone with houses and a boat, which are reflected over three-quarters of the painting in the water and go to the bottom in a green-blue. The vibration of the colors, especially the strong colors of orange in the complementary interplay with the blue, bring movement into the scenery. This work is one of his most expressive paintings in impressionist style in his oeuvre.
