Flow river flow, let your waters wash down

Watching the water flow over and between the rocks, causing submerged leaves to wriggle and wave is a calming experience. Sitting and watching, I begin to notice the myriad of colors that are revealed in the rocks and shards, and am hypnotized by the sheer beauty. While painting water with watercolors the experience begins to come back to me in a timeless exhale of calm. Below are the beginning stages for my painting of "Flowing Water".

Here the colors reveal themselves.
