Excellent work!
I may be sounding like a doofus, but I'm not familiar with Uart paper- is it commonly available? I've noticed several mentions of it lately. How does it compare to Canson?

Lovely and Lively! I get a more abstract ( essence) feel from it!

Hello Jerry, I have been using Uart paper for some time now. It is a sanded paper that accepts a watercolor underpainting I purchase it through Dakota pastel website. For me Uart paper wins over Canson . The Uart paper will allow numurous layers of pastel While Canson will lose its texure early in the painting process. thanks for commenting ..tom

Tom, this is very strong. I like the format and the weight of the darker darks. Stunning. barb

Tom, I love the mystery, the atmosphere, texture, sense of light and color. It may be a small thing, but I am a little confused by the water. Can't put my finger on it. Maybe the white directional lines are too "drawn"?

Anyway, I still think it's a great piece.

Tom, this is excellent! But the water has me a bit confused, too. I am assuming it is a crooked photo, because it looks like your water is flowing uphill from the left edge until the little falls.

Lovely colors and I really like the way you have handled the grasses and the branches!

Hey thanks Phil--I agree the water remains to be a problem. I will definitely pay close attentiion when I paint a studio version. Running water is a real challenge for me. Tom
