This has all the depth and freshness real watercolours can deliver so beautifully, and of which I am so far incapable. Congratulations on this very exciting painting !! The complements are invigorating, I don't find this shocking at all ! :clap:

Well, it kept this photo from looking boring-what, blue skies, green trees---LOL, have any idea how many times thats been painted? There is an artist(successful) in my area who paints his skies a pale yellow-faded into peachy pink, watercolors, sales like hotcakes. For more on purple skies see Tom Lynch's works, try his book, Tom Lynch's Watercolor Secrets. Best of Art to you :D

Thanks, sometimes it pays off to be kind of daring-do something different.

I find that hard to believe, that you could do a painting so bad you'd tear it up, but we all make mistakes, don't we? I've been told by Pampe in Paint Monthly-WC that the aspens would look better with some purple negative painting, so there's room for improvement here also. Thanks for the comments :D
