This is a plein air painting I started on an art outing with friends, yesterday. I would like to know what additions are needed to complete this painting. Thanks in advance. It is watercolor on clayboard, 12"x 16". Just want to do the final tweeks before spraying with varnish. Kay

A very nice scene kay. Maybe go darker with those background shadows between the rocks and add some texture to the foreground rocks?

Thanks Doug. I was thinking of bluing out the left hand side to put it in shadow, so the COI is on the right. Can you photomanip that for me? Kay

I haven't time at the moment Kay - I'm about to have lunch then go out to bowls. I'll try later.

Is going out to bowls same as our "going bowling"? Enjoy your lunch and afternoon. K

Yes, but bowling on grass, English style.

I had a look at shadows but couldn't do much to improve what you have. Maybe add shadows on right side of the rocks?

I may have cut some off, unintentionally, while scanning. Thanks Kayelyn. K
