In my second atempt I tried something I have not done before. Painted with watercolor on streched canvas that was primed with "Daniel Smith Watercolor Ground". Fun experiment but I`m sure I will continue with paper.
Regards Harald

Interesting experiment, Harald.  You'd never know how the canvas works unless you try it out.

Good job on your painting.   :clap: :clap: :clap:

Nice job on these Harald.  I think the difference between the two is that the directions of the waterfall are less obvious in the second.  Haven't watched or tried this one yet.  Keep up the good work.

Nicely done Harald. This painting has a much quieter soothing flow to the water. Isn't it amazing how simple changes to the texture and colours give the same subject a totally different effect.  :clap:
Well done.   O0
Cheers, Val

Well done, Harald.  The effect is outstanding. That's very interesting on canvas...Val is right...it's a slow, soothing painting.
Congrats on both...and a BIG congrats keeping up with Dennis! I get lost...he's 'dropping in color' and I'm still mixing the last color!  LOL

Nina, you took the words out of my mouth/ the thoughts out of my head/the letters out of my post.   :2funny:

My sentiments exactly! 

That's a very, very good pdf and I also appreciate all the work that went into producing it.  You always give us great information that can stay with us and we'll always have it to refer to.

    :thankyou:  :twothumbs:    :dance:   :cloud9:   :cool2:   :clap:   :flowers:   

...can't find enough good smilies to express my gratitude!   :)

Harald, painting on watercolour canvas is something I have not tried as yet. Will do someday  :whistle:
Your second painting is obviously much better as you now did not have to race against time  :2funny: :2funny:

Jenny, I love your painting.  :clap: :clap: :clap: Not an easy painting but you have captured the sense of flow of the water  O0 Great job.  :)
