Oregos at Requa

I want to paint this on a 1/2 sheet of WC paper. This morning, I thought I'd try it first on my small 10"x7" WC pad. Boy, am I glad I did! I think I'll eliminate the forward most rock. The yellow is a bit bright and the tilt of her head is a bit too far forward. For the most part, I really like it.

This rock formation fascinates me. It is at the mouth of the Klamath River. If you scroll down to the previous post, you can read the legend. I couldn't put them in the same post because you can only enlarge 1 image...

Wow, Tami!! I love this!! Outstanding job on the rocks, and I rather like the one in the lower right, maybe tone the top down to be more yellow ochre. An excellent composition and I think you SHOULD do it larger.

What a facinating site to sketch, definitely will make a great painting, the water and sky are fantastic, and I agree about the yellow - Really great entry!
