This is a commission for a friend of mine.Luke is his Border Collie standing in the middle of the stream,and this is the picture he chose for me to paint.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Hi everyone! Ok..tell me honestly.Is this piece worth saving or should I start over? I did some rubbing off of color to put in that beautiful blue in the center with some light maybe bu<br>t sienna/lemon highlights after .I really want to make the water look like water..maybe my technique is off?...Thanks all!

Im not a watercolorist so cant offer any technical help but i think you have made a great start to this painting. just for fun i layered your painting and the photo in photoshop and this is the result.

Missbee, this is really nice. perhaps just a bit more emphasis to the eye upon which the light falls? I like the sense of place you have captured here.
