Morningstar Mill 4

5"X7" Acrylic on board

Not the mill, strictly speaking, but the falls behind.

The thing I have enjoyed the most about this little series has been learning how to achieve the various textures using acrylics. I really must try something larger soon. Something that I can take my time over. I took longer than usual over this one, I think, but I could have gone on much longer.

Now that it is scanned I can see that I should have spent more time on the foreground. I should have made the lower edge darker, to close the frame, and probably picked out the little saplings more clearly. I may come back to it later.
