Acrylic on Canvas 180 x 61 cm
I visited Mill Gill Fall which is approached by a high path above the river and which was well worth the walk.
This stunning location was enhanced by an autumnal chill and blue cloudless skies, which contributed to the beauty of the waterfall itself and the surrounding area.
The brilliant colours, the sound of the cascade, the smell of the damp earth and the taste of the spray stimulated a full sensory experience of the place.
The water has already found a weak spot and has cut deeply into the rock where a waterfall cascades over the edge. The constant pounding of water wears away and splits the rock, causing it to loosen and fall eventually to become pebbles light enough to be carried downstream and rolled ever smoother, as they become smaller and smaller.
This is one of several sites in Yorkshire visited and painted by Turner.
