Rushing Waters - Acrylic Painting

Growing up in the beautiful West Coast of British Columbia has allowed me to see numerous rivers, creeks, lakes, ponds, and ocean.  This painting is not based on any particular body of water but from the memories that have accumulated in my mind over the years.

90 % of this painting was done as finger painting. I added some small details with a brush in the areas where my fingers were just to big.

With no photo references to work from it was interesting to see what emerged from my imagination.  Lately I am drawn to paintings with lots of texture and less detail, and am currently enamored by the works of  The Group of Seven and Tom Thomson
