    River Inlet in Progress

    Although I'm still working on flowers, I wanted to try something else so I decided to try a landscape. I need suggestions on how to display water gently washing up on the sand as well as color ideas for the actual water. I was thinking if a lake something on the verge of blue green tones.

    Any suggestions appreciated.

    First of all, that's a killer sky. As to water ... it's always a challenge. Just remember that it wants to lay flat and gets lighter at the edges.

    Thank You

    Thanks Pai and Robert.

    I may never be a Khalid, but I have given it my best try for a first go around. Painting is a skill and you either excell at it or fall somewhere down the line.

    It's a very good first effort Betty. Try laying your water lines/reflections in horizontally now.

    Robert is right. With your last post I didnīt say anything because I didnīt know if the water was the ocean or a river.

    As Robert said, blend your water to be horizontal, at least to the right of the beach. The water might come in a bit diagonally from the right from the horizon until it starts merging with the horizontal beach water part.

    At any rate, itīs looking good--and remember, the comments here (at least mine) are nothing more than suggestions.

    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Will give it a try

    Thank you Robert and Scott for your suggestions. I think I "picture" what you are saying and will give it a try.

    Smile Another Try

    Not quite perfect, but I think it definitely is better.
