Upper Falls of Sanctuary

The middle of the day is notoriously bad for light in the landscape, but it is the perfect time for heading to the woods to paint water.  Light will shine more directly through the trees and onto streams and waterfalls in the middle of the day, even in heavily wooded areas.  The cooler temps are a bonus in August, too!  Today, I am painting the upper part of the falls.  This waterfall has changed so much through the years. When I first painted it, it was lined on the left by very large slabs of rock.  These slabs have now caved into the falls, causing the water to spread all over in different directions, and the steep dirt edge is eroding.  I wonder how it will look next year!  Painting number 1320 on 1320 days.
