Waterfall in the Woods

With our recent rainfall, the waterfalls at the arboretum are stunning!  I've been drawn to them, and the cool stillness in this wooded area is very appealing.  I begin with an ink sketch, using a square paper this time.  With so many shades of green, I am mixing plenty, and starting with the cool greens in back.  Sketching so many stones, I finally realize that if I round off the rectangular shapes, they are so much more realistic!  Why has it taken me years to figure this out? Another day, another lesson!  Painting number 2329 in 2329 days.
