Rock Fall - a progression on toned paper

 Lately, I enjoy painting water and try to get the feeling of what it is like to be near the water in the woods.We all know how wonderful the air feels, cool and refreshing.

The size of this piece is a 9 x 12 on U-Art paper.

I toned the paper with a light water color wash just to kill the white of the paper.

Then I started with the placement of the large rock on the left side.

I progressed on filling in the dense trees, no sky, just the feel of being by the coolness of the river. Put the final touches in and done.
