Thanks pollywag, much appreciated.

Tousabella, nice work. just couple of things. The cliff faces are a little too smooth, should be more craggy and I think you need a little more blue i the fall itself. However, the splashing at the bottom is a real winner!  O0
Migjht need a little more mistyness ont hight han corner where the fall meetst he the flat part of the river though.

Bell, I think you did a nice painting.   :clap: :clap: :clap:

There's just something bothering me about those little rocks at the bottom of the falls.

I'll be looking forward to seeing what Dennis has to say.

Bella nice job on your rocks. I do agree with Batman about the right side of your cliff. The rocks in the water may need some shadow in the water. I think you are doing a fine job. KEPP IT UP!!  O0 O0

 :thankyou:  My 'other' painting has much more detail, but I'm still trying to "fix" the reflection!   I sure appreciate the input from you all. This one was fun.

Batman, well done.  :clap: :clap: :clap:  Do you want to improve your painting even more? Just lighten the cliff on the right side as it in the sun while the one on the left is in shadow. Do this and you will see a major improvement.

Bella, I agree with Batman and Lillian about the right side cliff and especially the water and the rocks at the bottom (not the large reflection). Take another look at my painting.

At last I'm here with my large waterfalls painting.

I got so involved that when I finished it was after 6 pm and I thought I had missed the hibiscus painting class! 

Whew!  I didn't!  What a relief!
I think it turned out better than all the others in the series.

How does it look to you?

 :clap: :clap: :clap: Wonderful.  It can easily be left alone but my only suggestion is that the sunlit rock face (right) could be a bit more lighter and orange to indicate the sunlight on it.

 :thankyou: Dennis,

I will try to lighten it a bit.

I'm sure glad I didn't miss your next class!  I'm really looking forward to it.

Lilian, WOW   :cheering:  The waterfall has such power, love the colors and the reflection in the water.  I am so impressed with watercolorists because it seems so hard to me.  Awesome job Lillian  O0

Lilllian! Goodness me lady, you have come on beautifully in your art work  :clap:  This is stunning and, I saw it on the front home page earlier and was waiting to see it posted here. It looks just wonderful and I bet that will get you a lot of credit from others if you have it displayed.
Congratulations! Keep up this amazing work and, oh, I will pop back to see if you are able to apply Dennis's advice on the lightening.  :clap: :clap:
