Hey Ted does oils too! Looks good Ted but I would scumble some of the sky color over some releflections to offset the mirrored look.

Here is the previous version which seems to have disappeared from the thread during the recent meltdown
You definitrly improved the painting. There is more eyeflow amongst the foliage cluster and the foliage is more unified. This was a good lesson for you. It wiped out an old habit.

I would create the diffused edges in the background and have sharper edges in the middle ground. In my book, the entire last plane in your painting with the exception of Rocky Mountains should be done with blurred edges.

Re: Homework for class 2-Essentials of Painting Water

Please help me to know how to fix this---it feels boring. I camped here in 1970 and it was anything but boring!Thanks. Looking forward to SKIES.
Water color pencil and soft pastel on cheap water color paper that is wearing thin.

Thanks for you comment. Will do..
Oh, yes. I am really enjoying the oils again.
Having better luck with them in my studio when I use Safflower Oil instead of Gamsol.

The mountain shape it too symmetrical.
The background trees are way too warm for that distance and the futhest plane is the same as the one before it. All the greens regardless where they are are the same.
Two equal trees on both sides. I think you should dig up a better photo.
