Field Sketches at Salmon Falls

Ended up in Rollinsford after a drive over back roads.
I set up behind the mill near the falls. It was quiet there.

The base of Salmon Falls.

I'm warming up on my first sketch.

8x10, oil on panel

I liked painting the waterfall so much I did a larger more detailed one immediately (18x20).  Had to work really fast. It started to rain. Needed my umbrella to finish it.

Shadows of big clouds... 

Watching those strokes...
