Water is great fun to paint. It gives me such a satisfying feeling to lay on thick and chunky paint with all sort of color nuances. I think this is the fourth or fifth painting at this little curve in the stream....and the only one that I kept. It was the rocks, not the water, that refused to look right, either being too modeled, too gray, too colorful, or uninteresting in shape variety. Most people looking at paintings don't realize how many 'don't make the cut' but hopefully will eventually lead to a successful one.
