Re: xpost from landscape - more river and rocks
Another beauty, Barb! I admire the looseness with which you painted the rushing water - it contrasts so well with the comparative solidity of the rocks. I have a thought for you to consider, not a crit at all, just a "what if" thing. What would you think about cooling and slightly darkening the values of both the rocks and the trees in the background? To me, the rocks near the top pop forward with their bright highlights and the tree color seems the same as that in the foreground. You might push the sense of distance by creating a cooler veil of color to lay over all the things in the background, maybe even the white water back there. Just a thought - feel free to ignore!
