This follows a reoccurring theme in my work. I've always loved painting rocks, and I've been fascinated with how water flows over it: waterfalls, streams, etc. Also, I've always tried to infuse bits of color to liven things up, and I think this one really does it!
BUT OF COURSE..... please feel free to share you insights, Critiques and criticisms.
I did this in Artrage, mostly with sticker Spray art brushes. and a little pastel. I used several layers, with some shadow on a multiply layer. My hope was to keep it a bit abstract, yet realistic at the same time.

Beautifully done Elaine, though I'm not sure about some of those dry pastel strokes.

Very good job. I do agree with Yorky abiout some of the harsher pastel marks. It makes it look unfinished in those places, but the rest of it is great.

I have that same fascination. It is such a challenge, and then reward, to paint water & stones.
