    Clay Basket Falls - UPDATED..

    This is from my memory bank of the many waterfalls I've visited over the years.
    The "Clay Basket" title I borrowed from a character in the great Mini-Series "Centennial" in the 80s, based on the James Michener novel of the same name.

    I did a lot of experimenting on this one. Some worked, some didn't, but overall, I'm happy with this.
    All done in ArtRage 2.5, with enough layers to keep a calculator busy..

    Edit: Thanks to "Eighty" for catching something that I had failed to take care of. I've added some rocks along the river at the top, and I think it looks better now. That picture is below the original.

    barnburner,
    Waterfalls could represent a continual flow of energy and might well also
    metaphorically represent life, movement and the direction we choose to
    embark on. Clay baskets we are and hopefully we will opt for the path of
    least resistance. A heart's inspiration, beautifully painted!

    Great clouds! The red bird placed at just the right spot, the power of the water, the bear and birds all make this very pleasant to view.

    Nicely done bb! This style reminds of an artist who's name has escaped me. I like the style of this. Somewhat surreal with a 2 deminsional abstract mixed in. Very cool!

    I am not annoyed at all. I look at constructive criticism as an opportunity to improve.
    You are correct about the need for rocks or something to define that the water is being held in on this side of the river at the top. I addressed it by making the ground darker by the river, but, looking at it now, I can see that it was too vague, and needed something more substantial.
    Thank you!
