12" x 16" Original Pastel Painting
by Colorado Landscape Artist,
Margretta Smylie Perry
This painting just won an Honorable Mention at the Art from the Heart Show at Front Range Community College, College Hill Library, and sponsored by the Paletteers Art Club. I was very excited to have this work recognized. I loved painting the rock faces and had to mentally work through the dark areas on both sides and how much to leave less detailed. I think I finally got the right balance that would lead the viewer's eyes to the rushing texture of the waterfall which pools and then keeps on falling. I hope you like it as much as I do!
