Great job Bill :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

Just two updates : add some more sky reflecting into the water - nice long flowing strokes to show the flat water between the wavesthen her foot looks a tad small, just check that and enlarge if required O0

Having had more success with harder paintings, I actually struggled with this one even though it was a "beginner" painting. I am not sure why. Any feedback gratefully accepted. You did well with yours, Bill!

It doesn't look like you struggled with it Barb. It came out beautifully :congrats:

I am not sure if it is just the angle of the photo, but check your distant waterline - it needs to be horizontal O0

Thanks, Bill, Mary Lou and Nolan. I think the angle is mostly the photo but I will tweak it slightly having measured it and found it to be slightly out. Thanks for that. Love your lessons and appreciate the websites so much.
