Harald, very nice paint along  :clap: :clap: :clap:
The main problem I have is that the mountain is too dark and too much yellow it it. It should be more very light orange and light burnt sienna.

If you gently lift out the colours to lighten them it will make a huge difference. By lightening the cliffs they will be seen to be much further back from the trees in the front. In other words it will give you colour perspective.

Harald, I'm wondering if you should have had your painting exposed to more light when you took the photo?

Anyway, lifting out some if the dark should not pose a great problem.   :gl2:

No doubt about it, Jennylynn, those are rocks!!!  Well done!   :clap: :clap: :clap:

I've got lots to do to get caught up on the watercolor paintings.  I can't believe how fast time flies away on me!
I'm looking forward to doing all of them and I'm  :envy:  seeing all the great paintings that pop up on the fourm.

Thank you for good comments and advise for improvements, I didn`t  paint this along, I tried thou but it become a great mess. This I painted afterwards but before the replay. I tried to be a wise gay and create the collor sing, it was not a good try and I`ll try another one and more follow the replay. And Lillian you are partly right it was a yellow light when I took the picture.
