Kwazulu Natal Waterfalls

Howick Falls

Howick Falls | 50cm x 30cm | September 2011

Here is a small oil painting I did yesterday of the Howick waterfalls. We stayed over in Howick when Charles and Jan got married in January 2010. Dad and I went to see the falls and I took some pics there which I used for reference here.

Generally I’m not one who consiously thinks much about technique much when I paint, but sometimes one needs to force oneself, so I decided to try limit my pallette which was a big challenge. No blues! Here is also a few pics of the process. Of course the blank canvas is the most intimidating bit of all. I chose a small size so I could make sure to finish it in a day.
