Congratulations Grandma!

Thank you Sharon for your comments.  You are so right.  I saw the problem too so I revised the painting and posted it a couple of days ago.   Please take a look and see if you like it. I feel the color on this painting is not attractive.  I like the color that  Richard created on his critique on Hazel's painting.  I am thinking to do another one using the blue and orange scene.  Happy painting!

Hello Xiao!  Glad to meet you here.  I guess I will throw in my 2 cents   I really like the river!  Like the sunlight on the rocks... but where is the sunlight on the distant trees?  I think they are a little too gray.  Sorry!  Of course, no one paints the same way.  I also think the sky is too dark.  Wow... I only have 2 weeks left... does this go to the 31st?  I hope so.  By the way, I am a new grandmother again, just today he was born!

Thank you susie for the suggestion.  You are right on.  The river is too straight. It should be made curving a little so it won't look like a devider of the picture.

very nice job xiao...i only have one tiny suggestion...your river leads the eye back very nicely but it's almost in the smack dab middle of the painting.  i like the foreground rocks!! susie

Thank you Iwan for the encouragement.  Comparing with Stuart's painting, I can see clearly the problems with my paining. The color is a little too bald and the trees are too stiff.  This is one of the reasons I like the format of this workshop.  When everyone painting at the same scene, you can see clearly which one is good and how you can improve yours.  happy painting!
