Hi folks
LOL not sure what I did wrong but the bottom of this is just horrid. Wonder if I should just get a saw and cut the picture in half as I'm happy with the waterfall and cliffs?

LOL at least I don't think there's any floating heads in this one but if there is a mystery Detective Urlee will solve it :)

LOL Urlee if only it was that easy to fix the original.

Thanks Judy - Tony agrees that I'm too critical of my own work, there's a lot about this painting that I love so I will try and shift my focus off of the yucky bits. :)

I did try and soften it to get rid of the streaks but it hasn't made much difference. LOL they usually take weeks to dry but because I want to manipulate the paint a little this week it has already set!

Well I think it's great. I love the waterfall.

Actually Sue,
It's that X like streak in the middle that detracts a little.
That painting is just gorgeous!
So life like and serene.

Is it just me or does the rock on the far right look like it has a face on it? haha

Beautiful job Sue! Embarassed to say that I just realized from this post that these are actual paintings. Thought you had been doing them in psp. Have been watching your posts and you are getting better and better! Love seeing what you create, can't wait to see the next one!

LOL Judy that head just keeps popping up. It's amazing how many faces can be seen in my painted rocks - a little spooky. :)
Urlee I finally got the X like streaks to go away - a little turps and a soft brush :) Now it loks more like the one you posted :)

Mandy wants me to frame it so that gave me an ego boost. :)

Thanks Deb :) Painting in real life is more fun as I manage to color myself as well as the board :) PSP just doesn't have the same hands on experience.

Sue :)
