Ragged Waters

The rocks of Ragged Falls are an effective set of teeth to chew up the waters of Algonquin Park. The water flowing off the highlands has to plummet through the tumble of Canadian Shield on it ways to the ocean. The result is the colourful splish and splash of water as it stumbles over Ragged Falls. I painted this from the 22x28 inch painting "Ragged Falls" which I completed in 2009. Normally I wouldn't recreate another painting based on a fairly large work. In this exception I wanted to make a match for "Oxtongue Rapids Revisited" while using the same palette of colours. These paintings are both 3x4 footers and I hope they are equally turbulent in their brush strokes.
