This is the Waipio Valley on the Big Island in Hawaii; I had painted a version of it years ago, and gave it away as a gift, so thought I'd recreate it. 12x16 on UArt 400 (I'm giving up Canson paper for a while). C&C welcome. Thanks for looking.

Re: Waipio

Nicely done! You have captured the beautiful greens, dark sand and moving water. I'd say the Uart 400 is a good match for you.

Re: Waipio

I've never been to Hawaii (sigh) and this makes me want to go! I'm glad you are liking Uart paper. Canson is nice but it's good to have the option to add multiple layers and do wet underpaintings too. The gentle color gradation of the sky and the softness of the wispy clouds contrasts so well with the energy of the waves.

Re: Waipio

Uart seems to work for you. Bold colors and a nice grading in the sky.
Also clouds and waves do a nice interaction.
