Trees in Yosemite

Here is my second imitation of Yosemite Autumn by Karen Winters. This time, I went for a square format, which is a lot more dramatic. I think it would look nice framed, but I feel bad about copying another painting (OK, it's not like I'm going to sell it, but I would like it a lot more if it was based on a picture that I or Brendan took in a place that we actually visited!)

The technique I used for the reflections in the water is from a book called How to Make a Watercolor Paint Itself by Nita Engle - it's full of interesting tips and inspirational examples.
