Here's what I have

Yes, that sky looks much better. The line on top of the mountain is good too. I feel the mountain could be more compatible with the hue of the cloud. I would shift it more towards the blue violet not violet itself.

Thanks, Johannes. I struggled with those trees for a while but I think I've got it now.

This actually looks a bit better in real life, not sure why it should, still looks a bit raw, and not well bedded in.

Want to create a real neat effect? Add an orange shimmer to a section of the water as if the sun is hitting that area. You will love it.

Re: Essentials of Painting Skies- Homework Week 1

I am a newbie to Johannes' classes and this forum. There are many puzzling aspects to the procedures for me, the uninitiated.
I am enjoying your paintings and although the Painting Skies course has ended, I continue to work through all he taught us.
