This is exquisite. The composition is so graceful and draws your eye to the waterfalls cascading down the mountainside. I really like the soft gray-green color that is the dominant color here.

So glad you decided to show your sumi-e paintings here in the Watercolor Forum, I've been enjoying them in the Postcard Project so much.

Thank you so much for your kind comments, Sylvia, Kitaye, Char, JoAnne, Rapolina and Alan.

Hey, Kitaye, GF. I've left our 2003 WC calendar on March, still haven't turned the page to April, because I love looking at your painting of that marvelous tree. :clap:

LOL! Thanks Ariadne. I ended up giving all of mine away to family members. Mom and Granny were suitably impressed. I'm glad you liked that tree. I do believe it ws one of my better watercolours.
