How to get the background to the recede, and to give the illusion of rapidly moving water? Ah, the pleasures of plein air painting.
In a multi-day spell of wet spring weather, heavy rains had swollen the streams. I got the idea that I ought to go check this waterfall. There was a possibility it could be dramatic and pounding. I hiked in through the woods with my easel and paints, and I was not disappointed. The spray from the roaring falls dampened my face. I painted quickly before another shower began. How to make the background recede, and to convey the motion of the water in a 2-dimensional medium? It was fun to try!
