Such drama! Your sky colors are reflected beautifully onto the surface of the river. Well done!

Great work, I love the depth of the perspective and the colors are beautiful.

Those clouds look like they're moving and the foreground grasses are beautifully done! I really like the way you suggested the pines with a few varied strokes of color, too. Gorgeous painting!

I like the somber mood of this painting and the sense of motion in the grass and trees. For the water do you start with dark and move to light or vice versa?

Those clouds look very foreboding! Nice color contrast with the bright green grass.

Thank you everyone.

JLombardi, I believe I started lighter with the water and after adding some darks, i adjusted as needed.

It is a beautiful painting the sky takes all the credit. To me the boarder of the river is too neat more like a grassy boarder along a road. Perhaps thick patches of grass, bushes or broken edges would have looked like the boarder along a river.

Sorry, It is only my opinion.

Ohhh! Very dramatic sky. Good depth of perspective too. :thumbsup:
