I'm quite happy with this one so far BECAUSE I've never tried to paint without drawing anything first - but several of you have mentioned it so I thought - "give it a try" - well, I did and I found I painted my "mother washes" more quickly and freely... and this got me in a better mood for the rest of it. About 4 hrs. in it so far - think about 4 more will finish (I know it's not a race, but I'm trying to increase my output). SO, I'm happy thus far. Thanks for watching it develope and suggestions welcome. jti

love the colors and the textures in this one. very mood evoking (good mood). what else do you have left to finish? i think it looks cool with unfinished edges so just wondering how far you will go.

You did very well! I need to practice drawing with the watercolor also. I think it looks looser that way.

I like the color choices and how the bottom seems to fade away.

It's finished IMHO... Love the unfinished look...

Isn't it odd - I kinda liked the flowing, undone piece too - but I have to fill it out. I've done a bit more and will post it when done - still open for suggestions though. jti

it looks good as it is now, I love the colorful mountain and the loose style, it's different than the other painting of yours I ever saw in the forum, it looks a kind of Chinese painting, especially the lower part.

jti... As a newbie, I don't have enough experience to offer good suggestions. However, I suspect you'll want your foreground darker with a little more distinct detail. I absolutely love the purple in your washes...... Afterthought.... You may want to soften the foliage a little where the mountains intersect... Good luck with this... It's very apparent that you're enjoying this one!
