Very nice knife work.:clap:

Maybe it's my monitor but the colors seem to cool overall but especially foreground. Some purer colors, some of your mixes seem muddy. Maybe a little warmth to the lightness of the rocks.

Maybe you know this, some others may not. When adding white to lighten a color it also cools it so you then have to adjust the temperature by adding a speck of yellow or orange or red.
A good way to mix a light color, try mixing a lighter pure color into the color you want to lighten...get it as close and light as you can...then add a bit of white if needed...then adjust temp. if needed.

Your watercolors are wonderful...checked out your website...also liked the cow in field that you posted

It must be intentionl .. in your water colors you have dept and distance but in this piece your coloring is void of any deep perception of distance.

Texture is something to stand up and shout about. A little more depth maybe..great colors.
