This is my new color painting on canvas, Water against the Rocks. As expected in a waterscape, the dominant value is light. The light value is created by the sky and water. I enjoyed painting the warm rocks as a contrast to the overall cool hues. The water splashing against the rocks overlaps the water and sky; helping to maintain unity. In the original scene, the mist resulted in a faint image of the mountains in the background. The reflections were not visible. I painted the mountains and reflection to balance the strong rock formation on the lower left canvas. I also added an orange yellow skyline as a complement for the cool blues.
