Drawing Niagara Falls – Part 4

Some days, Art is totally boring. Like today. Today was boring.

Seriously, the most action-packed part of my day happened when I mopped the floors.

Anyway, I’m working on this Niagara Falls picture. I’m trying to make it look roaring and powerful without having to draw all the little drops. I don’t want it to looks stiff because it’s easy to make waterfalls looks stiff when you draw them. I think the issue I’ve had before is the angle of the water. It’s easy to draw the water angle flat. I ended up erasing some of my previous shading in the middle falls and changing the angle, making it fly farther forward.

During car line, I finished up the upper falls. I moved to the middle falls, but I began to realize that I need to map out the lower falls first.

Yep that was all I could get to during car line. I’m really hoping I can get more done tomorrow.

Here is what I have so far:

Here is the reference photo:

Have a great evening, folks!
