LETORT WATERFALL By Cecelia Lyden

oil on stretched canvas
8x10
Thirteen of our plein air group met on another beautiful fall day at a spot near Middlesex, where the LeTort stream meets the Conodoguinet. I have to say that capturing water splashing over rocks on canvas was a challenge but kind of fun. It suited my style of painting of working quickly and splashing paint on a canvas.

I commented on this beautiful painting on the DPP blog, but can not resist saying how much I like this here as well. This is lovely!

I agree with Claire. The water reads so well.

Really nice...I can just hear it and feel it moving...so sorry I missed this beautiful day and this interesting challenge...well done!

How fun! If I remember correctly, Deb and Julie and Cecelia, were in a row going down along the Letort. Deb looks a little downstream, Julie directly across and Cecelia just upstream. By going from one to the other to the other is like looking at a movie...

Great job on the water, Cecelia. There is variety and your brushstrokes add to the sense of activity and movement.
