    I like the colors used on the mountains. Might be a little dark at the end but well let's see the next update

    jtougas Concepts aren't a problem of mine. Execution tends to be my problem area. But this one is pretty much inside the box compared to most of my usual entries ! And I have been developing an ink and wash Technique that should work well for this..

    MAX These are just base layers. Like real watercolors they will be built upon/over. Probably three layers . I think that will suffice. Back to work !

    The watercolour style is beautiful! It might be worth trying the same style on the rivers, there's a bit of a disconnect between the wet brushes on the landscape and the layer styles of the lakes.

    And, keeping with your (excellent) theme, maybe the water could be a slightly less... wholesome colour.

    cheers,
    Meshon
