Here are some of the in progress shots...tried an under painting for the first time, didn't like doing it much. I need more dark and light colors in my pastel collection.

That seems like the perfect title for this painting, Becky. You did such nice work on both the trees and the water.

Thank you very much Donna. Do you know if there is a way to delete my first post and move the post progress to the top?

I think you've captured the mood of the photo really well and it's fun to see the progression!

Thank you for the comments Don, Leslie and Luke! Still kinda of learning my way. I guess painting is like that, a lifelong pursuit of the expression of feeling and beauty.
