Third Pool, 7 Cascades

I went back to the pool all week, Tues 9, Wed 10, Thurs 11, Friday 12 and Saturday 13. This is what I did:

I started to the right of the waterfall, looking down. I liked the shapes and the diagonals of the background
slopes, which were mirrored in the foreground. I used a mixture of greys concentrating on tone.

Painting 1. 8x10" oil on board Step 1.
