This was the most challenging painting I have attempted since starting watercolours.
The reference photo is one that I took of a beautiful place in the South West of Western Australia.
One thing I have found using watercolour is that it really, really makes you look at the different colours and shading of each aspect. I was scared stiff that I would make a mistake. The rocks were the biggest pain! So many of them...
 :idiot2:
I used masking fluid for the white parts of the painting.
The second photo is in the mock up room which shows the actual size of the painting.
