1478 - Forest Waterfall

The sound of the waterfall was unmistakable in the forest. I landed the canoe and started looking for it. It was exactly what I had hoped that I would find. The heavy summer rains were still draining from the Killarney highlands. This waterfall was just 30 feet from making it to Charlton Lake. The midday sun occasionally broke through the trees to illuminate the tumbling water. It wasn't a mighty fall of water but for me, it was just what I needed.
The photo was taken as the painting neared completion with the inspirational waterfall in the background. There were just a few mosquitoes but not enough to rush my plein air work along.
