Work in Progress: Cedar Falls

Cedar Falls (WIP) Copyright Susan Bertke, 2011
Once again I'm mining my photographs from Hocking Hills State Park in Ohio. I'd say this painting is about 80% complete. As usual, I see several things I'm not happy with. Most importantly, I don't think the waterfall, which is the headliner of this show, is convincing. And the fellow standing with his back to us seems stiff and unnatural.

This is a case where I have to let the painting hang for a while until I see the solution to the problems. If any of you have suggestions, I'm always interested in your feedback!

  1. I think it is beautiful. The water reflection in the bottom (river) area is gorgeous (maybe more reflection in the falls too? I am an amateur so my opinion is probably worth very little, and I think the guy with his back to us is just right. Stoic which suits the frame of mind one has in front of such a natural wonder. Hope all is well :)


Feedback, please!
