My hostess in NY mentioned she would like a picture of the St Lawrence River so I decided to give it a try. This is on the smooth side of cason mi-teintes azure with various pastels. All comments and suggestions are welcome.

This ref picture was taken from a boat. The river was cold and rough.

I don't know why this scan is so grainy. Valerie

Can you try another scan, Valerie? It kind of looks like a lot of your pigment is missing.

I've made a couple of small changes, the island on the right looked to square to me and broke up the tree line at the top alittle. In the painting the sky has a faint pink and yellow tint near the horizon. Any C&C welcome.- Valerie
