Reference photo - when I try to add a reference photo,it changes the first photo. Is this an I-pad thing?

Yes, I'm afraid all ipad photos uploaded on the same day have the same file name and each overwrites the previous one. The ipad doesn't have a proper filing system.

The way to get the islands to lay flat is to make the bottoms level.

Hi Adigal,
I like the color palette you used for your sketch.

I think Doug's advice about making the bottoms level on the islands is spot on. Look at how the land in the background looks like it is emerging from the lake (the shoreline is flat) vs how your little islands aren't.

BTW, I've moved your thread to The Studio because this is where you can get help with a painting you may be having trouble with. See the guidelines above. ;)
