Hi All,

Heres my water over rocks attempt. Im quite pleased with the result considering no masking fluid but perhaps I could improve in some way?

Thanks Dennis and Nolan... O0

Trev,

Well done!

Your huge boulders look great. Nicely textured.

Maybe the greenery right behind the two big boulders on the right could use more textured contrast.

I am not good enough doing waterfalls so they look fine to me.

Better late than never, right?


"Fishing in the Cascades" Thanks for giving me the courage to tackle this difficult subject. I added the crane for scale and to relate it to the first waterfall lesson.

Thanks, Mea, Patricia, Val, Theresa and Dennis!

It's nice to see you all again and thanks for the nice comments. Things are still going along and I'm still painting, just haven't done the lessons in a while. This one has been on my board for over a year so I thought I'd better get to it! I know I don't want to copy, but really I am doing what Dennis says then I just keep going.  :eek:

See ya later!
