These waterfalls are hard to paint. The water doesn’t roar over the black rocks but it trickles. Today with all the rain we have had I bet it’s more than a trickle. All the creeks are roaring filled with water.
This is what it looked like when I left the falls. I did draw it on site. I think there was too much ink on the water to let the white show thru.
This is what it looked like after I added some white gouache. I think it was too thick. So I started to scratch it off.
And this is what it looks like for now. I think I would rather draw the people at the falls than that darn waterfall. But it is a gorgeous spot with an easy walk from the Sugarlands Visitor center.

Thanks for looking.
