Beautiful scenery! :) I like it.

Oh, I tried to make one water painting like you advised on "how to paint water" thread, but I keep failing. Maybe I did something wrong... :confused:

Thank you paul_uk7 for comment and

Thank you saddy and glad to read your comment. I think , sure you can do . Here I upload three pictures, speed painting with glitter, just to show how simple to paint water. First you paint ( trees, building, grasses etc -what do you like) after that captured same color and blend down with knife (flat knife). Then use soft knife make horizontal line to create the water ripple. Make sure when you paint the trees don't use only one color but add many colors like green+yellow, blues green (multiple green colors)..it's looks more beautiful. Thank you

Another beautiful one by you this makes me warm on such a chilly day here.

One thing I like most about your work is you seem to have a very confident idea on how and what to paint. I am sure it is partly experience and talent but also attitude.

Did you ever see Homer Winslow's watercolors?

Thank you Greeneyes, yes..warm area here and I'm glad if you can feel warm on such a chilly day.

Thank you JimGL, I agree what you said here...'experience, attitude, talent '. I used my technique based on my experiences, after tried and tried again. Actually many technique to paint water, but what I mention here is a simple technique, easy and everybody can do. About Winslow...several time I saw Homer Winslow's watercolors through National Gallery of Art website. Yes, very talented artist, (1836 - 1910).

Thank you coops for comment and thank you because your comments always motivate me .

Khalid, The first one is a masterpiece as usual! The second tutorial for Saddy is really nice of you. I enjoyed these very much.:)

Hi Khalid, again
I just don't get it what I'm doing wrong. I do like you said but I don't get the water ripple appearing... (maybe I should keep pause..?)
