I would prefer mirror back to the blue. I just don't like blue because it doesn't look natural. I've always thought this, even about reef tanks. I snorkel in the Keys all the time and I never see cobalt blue waters in the shallows where the majority of the reef life occurs.
But that's just my opinion. Anyway, definitely for a river type scene I plan on doing, cobalt blue will not work, so I must paint it.
