    Running water is very difficult.  You did well with your stream.  I really like the lighting of this piece.  Looking forward to your next.

      For the stream I mostly followed what was there in the photograph and tried to emulate it in paint.

      Texture is lots of fun to do in oil paint; it's easy to get carried away. I'm still trying to learn how to lay down a brush stroke and leave it there, rather than reflexively going over it repeatedly with the brush.
