This work was painted along the North River which flows into the lake where I live.
I have painted a larger version of this work, which I will post at a later time.
I sat on location at this site, and sketched and photographed it, and then returned to my studio to put together this work.
The picture is a pretty good representation of what I saw, although I did make an artistic change. Let's say, I improved upon nature.
A clump of trees grew out of the island in the river, but I intentionally darkened the background and changed the trees to birches. This brought the work to life.
I liked the lively flow of water, and the colour I worked into the foam. There is a saying in art that colour makes the whites whiter. It sounds strangely like an advertising slogan from a popular laundry detergent.
This work counts among the best of my waterfall paintings.
