I think this is really interesting. I like the muted palette and dignified treatment of the water. If you mean it to be realistic, you need more action, more asymmetry but as a stylization of a waterfall, it's most creative.

Thanks. I was hoping you would take a minute to comment. I enjoy your comments and enjoy your insight. I do not paint with the intent to create realism but maintain a tighter style. Thanks again

You have shown the powerfulness of the water moving over the fall beautifully. I too love those rocks.

Your friend is in for a treat.

This is a good painitng. I would suggest some darkness to your water as it falls down and some in the splash to show the waters first movement after hitting. This is IMO, lol. Very Nice.

The painting has a static feel to it, which if I understand you right is desired. I think it works with such a stylistic approach with everything but the waterfall...try as I might I cannot get away from the image of a wet sheet or bedspread hanging over the edge. Some slight differences in opacity would not I think, hinder the stillness you are projecting and might make it more believable as water...?

Thanks everyone. I have taken your advice and with a few modifications, I am calling this one done.

Thanks again.
