picked up the brushes, and had a go at it.

After watching a tutorial on youtube about making waterfalls, I wanted to try out the technique. I thought it worked quite well for being one of my first tries, and the painting itself looked okay.

The thing i´m struggeling with though, and have been struggling with all the way since I started, is making realistic nature paintings in daylight colors. It all seems a bit cartoonish when i try it. I guess i´m a little lazy when it comes to mixing out and choosing the right colors for it, but I think I still have a long way to go improving my techniques.

If anyone is reading this, and have a tip. Please leave a comment. I suppose it´s a good thing to have something to reach for.
