Bow River Banff

Bow Falls in Banff is a big attraction for tourists, and although I enjoy looking and listening to it, I have never been that moved to paint it. The scene off to the right, however, I have always wanted to paint. Yesterday I took a friend who had never seen the falls and the light was just perfect. I really liked the way the light bounced off the side of the mountain and the
contrast of the snow and shadows. While fresh in my mind I decided I would paint it. One smaller one and one huge one. This is my smaller study, 24 x 24  and my under painting for my 4 ft x 6 ft.

I love how the golds in the trees play off the cooler colours on the mountain Linda!
