Quick study


"Lower waterfall study, Jim Thorpe" by Hilary J. England, 8" x 10" oil on canvas
Here is a quick little study I did at the waterfalls in Jim Thorpe.  The weather has been quite nice lately, and all of the trees are so bright with their tight little buds, Spring is bursting into full flower.

I enjoy the plein air studies, and the chance to clear my mind in the fresh, cool of the river mouth.  I look forward to going back there in the near future, and completing some more studies, and perhaps, a bigger piece.

  2. Me too Kim...it was so cool, dark and mossy, and the smell of the clean river water over the rocks was heavenly...I just did go back, just to a different area in search of a "red waterfall" and I found it! The rocks are red, not the water LOL
