This is the base layer, a thinned wash, on 18" x 24" stretched canvas.
The Artisan palette is a little different this time: Titanium White, Cad Yellow Pale Hue, Yellow Ochre, Sap Green, Cad Red Med Hue, Fr Ultramarine blue and Raw Umber. I needed to control the greens more this time, and the area at the top just cried out for yellow ochre.
Once it dries, I will start to work on areas of interest and details. This photo is about 1.5 hours in...

It's nice to see how you start a painting, especially a landscape like this one. I love waterfalls so it will be interesting to see this develop.

Thanks Jan, Faisal, Crystal and Judy. I will be learning about painting moving water in this one, and how moss needs to be represented. I had several days available to do some painting this week/weekend, so I made the most of it...

Thanks Jan. I had a couple of hours available today, so I reacquainted myself with this painting. I worked on the banks and midground area, blocking in colour shapes. Lots more to do, maybe as soon as tomorrow.

Thanks Faisal. I am learning a ton with this painting. New subject, new techniques. Here is a newer progress snapshot, after 1.75 more hours of painting today (it's a long weekend in many provinces). The base layer of water is in, so I can go back to the stream banks next.

Looking good. I can feel the water flowing down a gentle winding path even with only the base layer.

PS: I'm off the road and settled in.

Hi Alan,

I am going to hold my precious comment for the finale... Smile I know you are going to blow us away like you did with your seascapes.

Thanks Jan, Judy and Faisal for your comments. I have 3 paintings in various stages of finish, so there is lots of learning to be done. Feels good.

An update on the waterfall painting. Another hour in; added rock in bottom left corner, and worked on the green on the right. sigh. Never enough time...

Very nicely done for a 1 hour painting. Quite good.

Both are looking good. Your creak in the original one is receding beautifully into the woods. The 1 hour one is also very good. It is amazing how you can still get the message across without taking days to paint. It gives a feeling of wilderness and freedom more so than the original one at this time. I'm sure it will go over well for the charity.

Thank you both for your comments. I hadn't worked on the larger version for several weeks, and the little 'quick sketch' session was just what I needed to get myself out of my stall. (thinking airplanes rather than horses, ha ha) Then I put in an hour on the larger one while I had the momentum.

I just love the feeling of texture in the small one.

I like this small one, Alan. Normally, I'm not a fan of a painting that's too impressionistic or abstract but this is just perfect. Hope it brings a ton at the charity event.
