Arctic Beauty

This one was a challenge! Get your fan brushes ready, by the end I had used all seven of mine!

Positives:
Mountain went ok, though I should have made it bigger. Sky went ok too (and fast!) I definitely improved on distant trees on this one.
Negatives:
This one just came out too dark for my liking. I probably should have had more crimson in the base purple mix.
“Little grassy things” and especially moving water really gave me fits, as they have in the past. I went too wild with the foam at the bottom.
I couldn’t get my evergreen trees to stand out due to the background being too dark.

Glad I gave it a try.

Nice painting I think it's not too dark and the mountains are not too small in my opinion and the water seems good to me.

Thank you for the encouragement! I look forward to trying another one, as always. It’s all learning!
