Ai Ke,

You have done well.  Waterfalls are not easy as you found out.  Yes, agree with the others on reflections.

Top add a little extra drama, maybe just add a few more slightly larger rocks on the left side.  Although they are not quite "soldiers in a row," they do seem a bit too uniform.  Test it out by using a piece of clear film (I use a half side of a sheet protector) to draw maybe one rock behind the existing line of rocks and a couple others in front.

Nice work.

Great waterfall, Cyril.   Has a real cascading look to it.

Maybe just a bit more shading on and around the rocks at the bottom of the falls.  They look too flat.

Another banner job Cyril!  :clap: :clap: :clap:   I love how the mist covers the rocks and seems to come forward in a light mist to cover the closer rocks. Beautiful rendition Cyril.  O0
Cheers, Val

Well now, this was a challenge.... having watched the class and made a complete pig's ear of my watercolour version of this class, I decided to have a go at rendering it in pastels ....  What was I thinking??  The water spray nearly drove me to distraction and this nearly ended up in the bin on more than one occasion. But I decided to keep on at it and see where it took me. What a huge learning curve!! Still not 100% happy with the waterfall bit but I have learned so much from attempting it that the heartache was worth it  :)


As always comments, crits and suggestions are most welcome.
Cheers

Cyril--yours is gorgeous.  Fiona, I actually thought it was watercolor.  This is great in pastel! Very crisp

Fi,

I feel your pain - I too struggled with waterfalls. 

Actually, your falls look good, but the wall behind looks flat - needs more texture, tones, etc.

Don't fret, I think it's better than most people could do.

The rocks at the bottom on the right could be varied more in size and placement.  But, they are beautifully painted.
