Waterfalls

I'm about ready now to apply aluminum leaf to my largest painting to date: Cullasaja Falls, and it occurred to me it would be a really good idea to practice on another waterfall so that I get this down. I don't want to "experiment" on this big one (it's just too large a statement piece to practice on and maybe mess up). So I chose one of my favorite waterfalls around here (about 45 minutes from my studio) and definitely one of the local landmarks. So I experimented on a much safer size (18" x 24") and I am REALLY happy with the way this one turned out and yep...I feel ready to tackle the big one now.
