Thank you Harald and Val. As I said, the problem with seeing your posting is that you then want to go back and 'fix' it or at least play with it. Where does the day go?

Good to see so many painting along with me - hope to see more doing so soon.
All my comments take into account the fact that each one had no real time to stop and think. Fabulous  :yippee: Proud of you all.

Harald: Good shot  :clap: :clap: :clap: Blend the diagonal line in the top left. The trees are part of the close cliff and not behind it - also the foliage on the left edge. The center far background is too brown and competes with the foreground rocks. It must be a grayer colour to push it into the background.
Other than that -well done O0

Gail: Well done  :clap: :clap: :clap: Lovely colours and execution. Just add some variation to the profile on the left - much too straight.

Anita: Also well done  :clap: :clap: :clap: You have really captured the "hollow" effect of the river as it approaches the edge of the falls. Add more brighter green to the foliage in the sunlit area. This will brighten up the painting.

Mary: You did wonderful for a beginner - and you kept up  :congrats: Just be careful though of making everything too spotty. Remember that I eventually went back and merged most of mine. Also the same comment as Harald on the left side - merge those straight lines.
Naughty  :knuppel2: - there is no such word as hopeless in my vocabulary.

Karen: You have done an excellent job- nice and bright, breezy and colourful  :clap: :clap: :clap: Water well executed - beautiful splash at the bottom.  Was going to comment but I see you have darkened up the cliff on the right. Darken up those 2 light patches on the top edge of the painting as the eyes are drawn there instead of staying on the falls itself.

Keep up the good work  :flowers:

Karen, loved your painting-up to the wonderful bar you set.
Dennis-if any more of us paintalong, it could take a full screen to hold all the comments.  Thanks so much for taking the time to comment on each and every one.

Hi Dennis thanks for the advice for improvements. I have tried to correct it. Hav I possibly overdon it on the left side?
I think the picture became much better.

Hi Harald, it has changed into an even lovelier painting, I don't think you did too much.
