I can't leave well enough alone! I tried to get the mist at the bottom more misty and the right side rocks a bit darker.
My husband reckons there is more water volume at the bottom than at the top!

Nice Karen.  I like the bottom, I lost some of my whites too early.  If I do again, I will try harder to preserve them.  Wow 6 of us this time-I think the others are starting to catch on that following along is more fun than just watching Dennis, you can do that later if you want to work along with the video.  All that fun if you just let yourself go and only costs one single piece of paper!

I am really impressed by the growing number of paint alongs and more so by the quality being produced. I can see the confidence being built up as a result of the paint alongs.  :clap: :clap: :clap: Well done keep it up.

Mary, just tone down the blue in the rock face on the right with some of the dull green and your painting will shine.

One general comment: be careful not to have any hard lines in the water reflections. They must all softly merge into one another. Hard lines result when the areas has become a bit too dry. Keep the paper damp until you are finished with the water.

We are going to have a nice lot of quality artists by the end of the year  :clap: :clap: :clap:

 :clap:  Definately better Harald.  The mist at the bottom of the falls is great. I'm thinking maybe just a tiny touch more colour on the right side of the falls near the top?
I like the rocks at the bottom better, more spaced out. Maybe a hint of colour there as well.
Great work Harald.   O0
Cheers, Val

Everything you did was very nice except the actual waterfall. The spots you added do not look natural. Remember the water is falling at a speed and you will only really see the water as streaks.
