Fury of the Falls

As you all know, I normally paint with pastels but I decided to paint a small landscape using oils.  As I was painting, I didn't like it so I started to rub it out.    I started to see the start of a waterfall....Is this what a happy accident looks like?   So I decided to paint my landscape another time. lol

  13. Bonjour chère amie,

    Il est parfois surprenant ce que le hasard nous offre. Le reflet de votre âme à ce moment-là plus fort que le désir de peindre un paysage ! sourire... Toujours est-il, je trouve ces chutes d'eau extrêmement réussies ! Tu es une fée !
    Gros bisous à toi et bon weekend

  26. It is the addition of the bird which made this spectacular, Hilda. It gave scale and power to the waterfall. Good for you for seeing this happy accident emerge and going with it.
