    You could change the font color of the 'water' names to white; that might help them stand out against the dark water. Maybe lower the opacity to 50% or something to avoid blinding white text.

    D said exactly what I was going to say but I was going to suggest a tan or light yellow color. I think he's been eating my brain.

    a bit more work tonight while wife watched celebrity apprentice. Reality shows are rampant in the U.S. - this one staring Donald Trump.
    anyway, worked on some labels and coloring. I think I like how this feels. Thanks for the feedback so far.

    forgot to move saint pauls bay, but i will. lot more labels and cities and stuff to add also.

    Looking very nice RJ, although with the tapering I wasn't quite sure whether I was looking at roads or rivers... I love the look though: printed on board and stuck in an attic for the last 4 decades.

    good point about the roads. I used an artistic brush stroke in Illustrator for the roads, which tapers at the ends. Also I used a round brush set to fade in Photoshop for the rivers. So yeah, they both taper at the ends. I think at this point I like the looks, so i may do some labeling or color/stroke adjustments to them to differentiate a bit more.

    Thanks Tigon

    Looking really nice RJB. That terracotta colour (which I really like) is becoming a signature colour for your work!

    Not sure but I think you're looking for "Dieu est mon droit." God is my right.... Awesome color scheme as always RJ.
    Cheers, Julien
