Used inktense to stain watercolor paper dark, applied clear gesso and then used soft pastels.

I would like to have seen more detail in the water, but it is a very good painting.

Thanks Nelson, Thanks Alan. Towards the end I kept working on the water till it couldn't take any more pastel. I had already fixed a layer below it and didn't want use more fixative. You are right though, if I could I would have put more detail in the water, and there are some things about the tree line (too stiff) I would have changed. Next time I need to add details sooner. On to the next adventure!

Trees and cloud look fine, I like what you've done.
