I really love the colors in this painting! I finally feel like I figured out how to paint realistic water (you should see my first few attempts trying to use acrylic paint, it's laughable).
I really struggled with the path so I painted a fallen tree because it's my world. I've started adding my own twists to paintings. I've learned several techniques and I feel I've learned the skills to improvise instead of just copying Bob. I am happy with how this painting turned out.
