Linville Falls

Parkway Series # 165  12 x 16  oil   SOLD

The sound of water running over rocks and the warm sunlight and the woodland smells all filled my senses as I hiked along the path up to the falls on this gorgeous day.  The water was so clear you could see the sandy bottom and so the rougher water reflected the sky and the in calmer places the yellow- ochre of the sand gave the water a greenish tint.  The blue-violet of the rocks and the yellow-green of the grass and water fill the painting with complementary colors and the dark warm reds peeking through in the background add even more subtle contrast.
