|2 views of the Falls in my sketchbook. Watercolor pencil and graphite|
I sketched this on site in pencil fairly detailed but refrained from adding color as my pages were getting wet from the spray of the ever-present mist of the Falls. I added color later on from memory. Standing beside the edge of the Falls is a real experience, where you can see through the water to see the edge of the cliff beneath and due to the high velocity of the passing water one experiences the illusion that is they who are speeding along rather than the river.
