Best yet. I love those green lumps.

Not sure about the type mixing with the picture, though; "taking" is barely readable, and the type and the picture don't mesh easily

"Taking" is one of the areas of highest contrast on my monitor. Hm...

The first two mounds are especially nice to look at, significantly better coordinated colours than the remaining three, though the last one is not bad. By opening two windows side by side I can see how much better, but I'm not sure I can say why. Maybe because of the acids that emerge in #3 and #4? I don't know why.

I can read it just fine (with the micro exception of the 'a' in 'and' slashed out by dark overlapped colour in #2), but how to visually incorporate the irremovable text continues to be an issue, I think. I'd like to see how a draftsman's hand (which though structural and regular can be a touch softer than hardcast typeset) might provide the backdrop scenes with a... well, touch.

Nicely printed out in hand would be more like a letter to the reader

I'm looking over some of my hand-drawn lettering for comparison and I'm starting to agree.

mountain momma-nice greens.

this is somewhat of a stretch but the the composition is kinda similar to ronnie landfields abstract landscapes composed from large brush stroke swatches of color. these also crossover with dzubas.

Almost heaven...
I too think a more human typeface would help.

Interesting how watercolor with its built-in variability over white paper gives such a convincing effect of middle distance, where detail starts to diminish in the actual landscape.

Beautiful hiils, but I agree - hand-drawn type would work much better. I do like how I can see for a split second the imge load under the type - must be that fancy Python stuff.

to #8,

also, as someone mentioned about an older tmfom, the white light of the computer monitor lends a unique vibrant quality to the watercolors you just cant get on plain old hokey paper.

oh and - needs more manuscript/cowbell...
