 :thankyou: one and all, Nina, Natalie, Lynn, Rita, Tina, Tony, Val and Mary. 

Thankyou for your encouraging remarks!

I did try to lighten it and make it more orange.  I think it looks more in keeping with the left cliff now with more orange. 

I'm not sure if I accomplished making it lighter.  I did some lifting out before adding a light wash of orange and putting the details back in.

It's always better to get it right the first time. 

I did have fun painting this beautiful falls.  I would love to see the real thing.

I've just taken another look at your original Lillian. I think this updated version looks better even if it's not a big change. It seems to centralise the water falling and keeps us in the painting better.
Oh, that water reflecting is just fabulous!  O0 :clap:

Tony, Val and Bella,  :thankyou: so much for being so encouraging.

Now perhaps I should try painting Niagara Falls.  That's where we were on our honeymoon almost 51 years ago.

That sounds a great idea Lillian! What a wonderful way to rekindle your special memories. Go for it kid. I look forward to seeing it if you do. Wouldn't it be so special for you to display it and your hubby to admire your skills?
