View Full Version : Cove Creek little fall. X-post

This is one more Plein Air what I did this evening. It took probably about 1,5 hours of work. My very same favorite area on Cove Creek near with famous Appalachian trail. This time I tried to paint not a creek, but little (and very loud!) waterfall.

La Carte, 11 X 14 "
Art Spectrum Marine set (40 colors)
Some mixed green pastels.

C&C are welcome!

Very nice, Tatiana! I like your use of color in the pool below the waterfall. I am certain that (many years ago) I hiked the stretch of the Appalachian Trail near to where this scene is.

Thank you, everybody!

It was great time out and I like my painting too. The only problem I had - choice of support. I generally love La carte for painting out, since it holds pastels perfect and I have very little worry about smudging it or something... HOWEVER it is extremely sensitive to water and humidity. Naturally to say, it was very humid, so I was about to run into problem and have everything ruined... luckily it didn't happen! :-)

Hi Tatiana,
I like the lush greens in this one. The short storkes bring a nice vibrancy to the piece. Nice.

Thank You, Ron and michko !

Ron, I'm glad you pointed out my greens! :) They are handpicked from different brands, because I'm generally NEVER happy with greens that standard sets will have... So I had to create my own collection and love it too!
