Tried to salvage the Bougainvilleas water color I did by punching up the colors a bit

This is new, did it loosely from an inside passage pic I took years ago.  Not sure how I'm going to finish the left side of the channel here. :confused:  Any thoughts on where to go here?

 :clap: :clap: :clap:  Very nice Steven, my favourite being the last one.  The reflections are beautiful in the water.  With regard to the left side, I would just close it up with trees and an embankment and follow through with the gorgeous reflections.  As I have said before, I am a newby to the art world so wait for others to come in and give their ideas.  Patricia

Patricia, it's what I was thinking too, I just need to figure out how to do it in something close to scale and make the composition balanced.  I might move the left bank down the page a little so it's closer to the middle of lower 1/3 point.

Thanks to both you and Jill for the comments  :)

Nice land/waterscape, Steven.  Not sure what more in should have without seeing the photo.  I know you will do it well, though.
