Thank you Carol, Dennis, Mea, Natalie and Jill - I will do some tweaking on the shadows and the bushes. I really enjoyed doing this one  :)

Cheers

Hi All,

Posting my, "On The Wing lesson". The paper I used was a Strathmore 80lb and the texture seemed too rough unfortunately. I changed the stones on each side a bit. Please, all comments and crits are well received.


Cheers

Hey, Juan Carlos.  Nice to see your work again. 

I love the subtle colors on this.  Bird and its reflection is so pretty.  I like the rocks on the left, but not sure what happening on the right - kind of more like molten lava only it's too repetitive.

But, I really like it.

Nicely done Juan  O0   Perhaps just a few better defined trees(?).  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Hi All,

Thanks Val and Mea for your kind words and crits. I am attaching a 2nd version with improved trees in the background. As for the rocks on the right, my first intention was to make a whole rock outcrop as sometimes happens next to the streams and eroded by weather, specially water, rather than big-moved stones.

Dennis thank you for your encouragement and remarks. I didn't want the trees to stick out much but I used some soft brownish and low yellow reflections to show them.


Cheers

Juan Carlos,

Good job.  It has a very mystical feel to it.  The rocks on the left look much more natural now.

I really like it.

Oh, what does your signature mean?  it looks "Varela."
