Letort Falls by Julie Riker
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect November day to paint together at this location. I tackled this day with a larger canvas than my usual and chose what proved to be a challenging view of the falls. When I started painting a large part of the falls was shaded by a tree behind me and I tried to capture that cooler light as well as the motion of the water. This is pretty much how the falls looked from my vantage point, but I am trying to decide if eliminating some of the rocks in the lower right and toward center area might make this a better painting. Any suggestions?
