Greetings This is primarily acrylic inks with tube acrylics for the rocks and white caps. It's from a photo of a recent trip to the Smoky Mountains. Sorry it's a little out of focus 11x14. Comments /crits welcome. Thanks for looking.

Nice use of the inks for the textures - and good contrast with the river.

With the rocky shoreline on the far side seems like there would be some variances in the straight line of the water. The red/brown color draws my eye there and makes it more noticeable..
The biggest splash way to the left is an eye grabber also..
Consider where you want the viewer to look and travel around the scene..
tips in my siggy..

The rocks & cliff stones look great..

Great observations. I was wrapped up in learning this new technique (for me) that I wasn't very mindful of the direction. The red line was sort of a happy accident/ artifact of the way the paint was mixed and applied but I liked it so left it. I could add some rocks or maybe some driftwood to break up the bank line. Thanks again!
