Earlier this week I posted a view of Apple Orchard Falls, from close up. I was showing the movement of the water, and focusing on the composition. The next day I painted this painting, a different view of Apple Orchard falls. This painting shows the whole falls. Again, this is one of my favorite places in Virginia.
It is fun to show the different characteristics of the same subject. That is why artists do series of paintings of the same thing. For example, Claude Monet did his haystack series, painting the same haystacks, in different lights, different times of day, and different compositions. It is a great way to play with the elements of art and composition, since you already have a subject you have explored.
I hope you enjoy this painting of a beautiful place.
