Colorful Falls

Colorful Falls, a photo by linfrye .. on Flickr.
12" x 16"
Arches 140#CP

Summer temps have returned, but my mind is already geared for fall and for playing a bit with new color combinations.

This painting is an interpretation of the waterfall (cascade) that I photographed when I was visiting Doris in the spring.


You can see how I cropped the photo and simplified the subject ... and changed the greens to more colorful paints. It was a lot of fun!! and not as 'bright' as it appears on some monitors. The pinks and purples are more subtle in real life.

I'll be on and off line for a while as I care for my mom ...
