Fast Water

I came across this painting which I had started a while ago (see post 11 August 10) and decided to work on it today.

Some of the rocks needed more definition, so I used that as my starting point.

When I was satisfied with the rocks I started into the water I added various mixtures of dark blue, blue green and yellow into the water trying to create the illusion of movement in the fast flowing river.

When the water was dry I used an exacto knife and picked out the white of the water as it splashed against the rocks.

This is an original 6-1/4" x 9-1/4” watercolour, framed and available for $225.00.
