I'm continuing this month's theme of water for Kate's alumni group. Watercoloring water challenges me as much as portraits do! I like the goose in this sketch and some of the reflections, but the water --?? Good thing I have a month of practice ahead of me!

It's beautiful Lin! Perhaps the waterjust needs a little perspective, like fading the colours into the distance? Just a thought but it's lovely as it is!

Lin, that goose is awesome!! What a beautiful job on that!! I love the whole picture.

Water is an area I haven't even begun to explore, although I have read a ton on different techniques, if that counts for anything. The goose should be very proud of his creator, he is beautiful! It will be interesting to watch as you learn this month.

The goose and the reflections are fabulous Lin! I've never tried to do water with watercolour before, but I'm thinking it wouldn't be easy. Can't wait to see how you progress with this challenge throughout the month. :o)

The water works for me but I especially like the way you painted the goose's feathers. Just enough detail to define it and not too much.

Beautiful work! I love the refelections in the water. All the best, Ger

Lin, someday I hope to draw and paint something that well--It's just lovely!!
