More of my favorite subject (Yosemite)

These are the latest "morsels". I am pleased with how I created the waterfall in this watercolor of Vernal Falls in Yosemite National Park. I've struggled before with water since it's (usually) in constant motion. I haven't known how to capture it in a way that I was satisfied with the finished result.

I feel like things are *starting* to click better in my brain. Things on paper are closer to how I'm seeing them in my head. I have a long ways to go - but I do feel like I'm on the road.

And well on the road you most certainly are!!! These are your capture of the waterfall in the first drawing.
Your second drawing has such a good feel to it as well-a great vista lies beyond...really pulls a person in! Wonderful work! :)
