Little Qualicum Falls Inspiration

This set of waterfalls near Qualicum on Vancouver Island provided a lot of inspiration, especially the three pools – one was all shimmery water and light, one black and deep and the other palest green with bluish stones in its depths.

The ‘three pools’ on two pages of my sketch book; crayon and gouache.
