Re: WDE Jan 11 River Rocks

I am shocked and pleased by how many of you took on the rocks, by far the hardest image. Your colors are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Lovely contrasts of cool and warm and texture. Very striking Kate.

Re: WDE Jan 11 River Rocks

Oh, that looks great! Love your color choices and your rock forms are totally convincing. I was afraid of that reference.

Re: WDE Jan 11 River Rocks

I admire your skills with this piece, you can see the hardness of the rocks with the softer water around. Fantastic.

Re: WDE Jan 11 River Rocks

The technique and the effort put in have given these stones character. This has a powerful sense of reality as well as a strong decorative quality. Super!
