    I completed my third Julie Gilbert Pollard painting today. Again it is a study of painting water and rocks. I believe I am gaining some good experience and confidence in the techniques I need to make these scenes realistic and better in my paintings.

    My real test will be to paint scenes similar to these from my own sketches. I may get that chance tomorrow. If the weather is nice, I am taking my Annie into our canyons and mountains to shoot photographs and to sketch plein air watercolors of our fall colors. Hopefully, I will have something to show in a day or two from this trip.

    I have one other image of water and rocks sketched to paint but may not post it here cause I may choose opaque paints.  If I do use them it I will be my first attempt with opaque paints. I am curious to see how that may turn out.

    I like this Howard, you have caught the feeling of movement in the boiling water very well.

    Very lovely! Love the spray from the water. Also really like the backruns in the front rock. It gives it more texture and interest.

    Thank you.  Water and rocks are still difficult for me.  I’ll schedule more practice scenes…  Maybe I shot some scenes today while visiting Wolf Creek that will be worthy of painting. I’ll download my camera’s images and see.

    This is nice Howard. All 3 paintings are good. Nice shapes and colors. Pretty realistic looking water.
