There's many studies, practices and "finished artworks" that I'm doing lately. Most of them not even worth scrap :-(
I have realized that I'll have to do more paintings in shorter time instead of over-doing each painting and getting frustrated. I feel like this one came out pretty well. What do you think?

I love it honestly, its amazing how well everything "flows" together, wish I could do that in GIMP!

Thank you! It took loads of painting, smudgeing and painting over it again to get some balance between blur and sharpness.
I think with Photoshop you could do much of this with just one single stroke. But as I paint just for fun and cannot afford costly software, I'll stay with FLOSS.

:o probably but I've never been very good with photoshop either (I had elements and my husband got CS2 really cheap on sale). Have you tried Mypaint? It's got some of my favorite brushes for an ubuntu drawing program its almost like corel painter.

Yes, I have tried Mypaint. I even have some Mypaint work in my gallery. It is a nice piece of software, but I have a hard time making some texture with it.
I believe that Krita 2.5, which has just been released, has it all: Custom pixel brushes like GIMP, Mixbrush, Mypaint-ish brush engine, textured or dual brush like Photoshop. As soon as I find a good repository, I shall give Krita 2.5 a try!

I looked at it and its not a complete download its in different parts and I'm not computer savvy enough to install it. I might later when its a complete DL. Please let me know how it turns out!

Yes, it came out really well, especially the white hilights on the water. Keeping the foreground fairly shaded seems to bring attention to the waterfall nicely, and the composition is good. The plants in the foreground to add a minimal bit of detail are a nice touch.

Hi, thank you very much for your kind words and detailed critics. It is a great honor to me.
Anyway, all credits regarding composition belong to jOuey. I wish I could come up with such an idea myself, or be able to take a photo good enough to become a reference to a really nice artwork...
