Yes, another waterfall! I enjoy painting water. I can spend all day chasing, photographing, and studying water. There is something magical the way it falls and flows. I’ve been painting for 40 years and I always find something new and inspiring to capture back in my studio.
This watercolor study also was a 40-minute study. My focus for this painting was the light and dark patterns to get the effect I was looking for in this watercolor. This waterfall is Bond Falls in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, this part is above the main falls. (MAP)
I have had many students ask how I find so many beautiful waterfalls. Well, I have two books in my library I use for waterfall hunting in the Northern Midwest, Both found on Amazon:
I also like www.gowaterfalling.com. The author and photographer haS posted many of the waterfalls in the Great Lakes area including Ontario, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Unfortunately, the website was not built for viewing easily on your smartphone. My wife said it should be a responsive site where it flows to fit the device it’s viewed on. I’m glad she understands this stuff. Well, needless to say, you will have to zoom in and view. But the site is worth it and it is up to date — the last update was Sept 3, 2018. There is an impressive wealth of information and photos. Bookmark this site.
