Well thanks to Madmum I was able to scan this in two halves
and stick it together so I could post this here.
I started it the other night. It is not done by any means.
Here is the original picture:

Here is my painting, which needs alot of work.
Done on Arches 140lb. mostly DaVinci paints.

There are areas on the falls that don't have color on them yet
and the tree on the right doesn't have it's foilage yet.
I could use all the helpful comments I can get. :-)
I could use some helpful suggestions on doing waterfalls especially.
I am also struggling with the color I would like to achieve darker colors but still clean and crisp.
I always have a hard time with that.
Thanks all-
Carolyn

Carolyn............. what an interesting composition............I think its coming along nicely................ I'm no good at water........... so my only helpful comment would be watch your greens......... as they recede into the distance they generally get softer and bluer (Arial (sp?)perspective!)
