Prompt: Sandals. The tiny Klipspringer walks on tip-toe, as though wearing high-heeled sandals because their hooves point downward. This allows them to jump and land on a spot the size of a dime-Zebra Zensations Technical Pen & Daniel Smith Watercolor on Hahnemühle ColdPress Watercolor Postcoard Klipspringer-Zebra Zensations Technical Pen &a…[Read more]
When it comes to a “Waterfall,” our prompt for today, I’ve only experienced the smaller variety found in creeks. While trying to sketch a creek version, it turned out a bit more tropical as I inexplicably started
Charlie, your waterfall is very much like the ones in many of the brooks of my childhood. Swimming, catching frogs and watching little fish try to hide are memories that come to mind. One family camping trip the cousins and I tried to catch fish on safety pins tied to string using american cheese and hotdogs as bait. Most of us gave up and decided that sliding down the small waterfall in our bathing suits was more fun even though the brook water was very cold.
Your waterfall scene is is quiet and serene! I was talking with someone just the other day who proudly told the story of his third grade experience where he told the teacher that he ‘didn’t do art’. His parents backed him up and he was allowed to take another class during that time period. I found it all rather sad. I don’t think the school or parents did him any favors.
As a total water child, I love this. I even thrilled in the hard rain we got today. Lol Having grown up in a swampy area, very near Lake Michigan, and really within a 15 minute drive to all different sorts of watery places, I applaud your little waterfall.
Beautiful! Living close to the Columbia Gorge, we have lots of inspiration. I have always admired people who could paint waterfalls. I challenged myself this summer to start trying them. The first hike my son took me on, we visited 3 falls. I have painted the 3 falls and I have learned along the way. Each a little better, but still not where I want them to be. I watched one video for inspiration, but need to watch more!
