I’m still fussing with this one

Still fussing with it

I have been fussing with this one for over two weeks now.  I am trying to add some green to the water in the lower right.  First I add something and then I take it away.  I can’t seem to get it right to my eye just yet.

I am pleased with the depth but that front is driving me crazy.

    It’s good when we can be critical of our own work and challenge ourselves to work until we are satisfied. That’s what helps us learn I suppose. The nice thing about acrylics opposed to watercolor is that you can keep working on it. I was a little confused by the green reflection at first. Maybe if it had a little of the brown around the edges or a rock in it, it would be more clear it is water. Just a thought. Nice work as always Ruth!

      I have been letting it set some to get a fresh look. Thanks for the suggestion. I’ll keep it in mind. I am using the acrylics to help free up my eye and not get too stuck in one direction. It is easy to get afraid to “mess something up”. And yes, I agree you can’t do that with the watercolors.
