I did the first pass of this as an experiment in color for the April Landscape Project. Didn't like it, and I don't think anybody else did either. I'm discovering that I can rework gouache, so I worked this one over a bit. I'm not even going to post the first one here. This is the reworked version.

C&C welcome.

Great painting! My favorite part is the reflection on the water - it's beautiful and deep. Nice composition & as always, great sky.

The paper looks pretty textured or "ridged" - did you use a different type of support? I like it!

Nope. Same cold press Crescent board. I did use light washes in the reflection areas. Maybe that's why it looks that way.

This is such a delightful painting. The colors are somewhat muted and all go well together. I love the reflections and am impressed with the rocks.
