Water fall Paintings Plein Air

This week I did a couple Plein Air paintings at the cascade falls nearby where I live in Salida, CO.
I painted with artists Carl Ortman and Barry Thomas when I did the painting in the first two pictures. It's always fun painting these falls. There is endless compositions here.

Below is a shot of that start of the painting. Sometimes I like to use washes in order to get a lot of color in quickly.

Below are some detail shots.
