Waterfall Study

Waterfall Study

24" x 18"
Oil on Panel

The foreground water and the submerged rocks were so interesting that I wanted to try painting that effect.

Unfortunately I did that first and then having all the fun stuff done I was left to do something with the rest which had been  only roughly drafted. 

So it sat near the easel for about two months and every once in a while when I had an extra few minutes of leftover paint or something I would pick it up and play with it

On the other hand if I do the work part first then sometimes I lose focus on what I wanted to paint.

Anyway I still like the rocks and the pool and despite it's history it still has some reasonable unity.
