  This is a watercolour 10x12 on 140# CP. The scan did not pick up the full size. I finally got to finish by placing a few final touches on it. It has been sitting for months. Didn't know how to finish the painting. As always would love C&C to help me grow in my progress in waterclours.  :thankyou:

I love Bryce Canyon!  I've spent lots of time there.  All those rock formations, and the COLOR!! WOW!  What a subject to paint! 

I think this is a great start - as for finishing it, I wouldn't have any idea!  I'll let the experts chime in on that one!

I'd love to see it again when you finish it!

This is only a suggestion.... I would look to settle on where your light source is coming from, having difficulty trying to place it. Then you could darken some of your shadows. More darks in the foreground will help to give you more depth, so deepening the colours will do that for you.
Very nice subject here.   O0
I'd hang on for Dennis here, these old eyes ain't what they used to be!   ;D
Cheers, Val
