Waterfall

Another subject I borrowed from another inmate, an oil painting of another artist with some changes. Primarily I decided to leave the bear out of the painting. I enjoyed this painting. It was difficult for me. Difficult to create depth. Difficult to paint rocks, making it look three dimensional. Getting all the shadows and light spots on the rocks to make them come to life. Painting the pine forest showing the big trees close up and the small distant ones. Painting moving water is always a challenge. I learned a lot on this landscape, and it didn't come out as nice as I would have liked, but I learned and enjoyed painting this landscape at recreation. It brought back great memories of the many waterfalls we visited as a family both here in the US and in Haiti.
