Study 1: Mountain scape

Enjoyed all of the layering that happens in this piece. It pushed me to really think about my values from one layer to the next. I realize that my bottom mountain layer either should have been a bit darker or I should have made my second to last mountain layer just a bit lighter.

Study 2: Sunset on Beach

I think that I over-wet my paper when I was working on my background. I'll have to attempt again with less water to start. I ended up waiting a couple minutes before starting on my clouds because I knew they would end up over-bleeding and completely loose their form if I would've went in sooner. I see my reflection for my crooked pile should have also been crooked and I've made it straight.

Study 3: Fog in the Mountains

I tried to learn from the past mountain scape layers and control the amount of pigment used and believe I've succeeded in making a better variation of values.

Study 4: Rainy Pines

Here again I've over-wet my paper when working on the sky gradation. Will have to continue to practice that.

Study 5: Misty Lake

I really enjoy how loose this landscape feels - and how minimal.
