Love this purple/yellow-green palette, Deb. I like the effects you're getting on the hot press paper. It leaves such a nice, lush sense of the wateriness of the paint. Those trees are great--very fresh--and the yellow sky is terrific. The water just sparkles. I look forward to seeing more!

Thanks Linn, Deborah and Annie! I liked working on the hot press. I noticed with the gouache especially, working on a smooth surface for me is easier to control the paint.
