Chattahoochee Fall

“Chattahoochee Fall "

I love the Chattahoochee River.  I’ve rafted on it and even caught a few trout in its water.  But most of all, I love its beauty.

Following a late fall trip to the river, I decided to complete a painting using one of the photos I’d taken as my model.  Initially, I did a regular watercolor painting.  But I wasn’t satisfied with the result, something seemed to be missing.  After setting it aside for a brief time period, I realized I was missing the variety of ‘textures’ that the river provides.  So, instead of simply forgetting the painting, I overlaid it with torn pieces of wrinkled rice paper that I glued to the original painting and then repainted it.  The torn paper with portions of the wrinkles in combination with a variety of methods of applying the paint (including using an old sponge) resulted in this painting.

 

This is the original painting of “Chattahoochee Fall.”  It is a 15" x 22” watercolor on torn rice paper with a 140# cold press watercolor paper backing. It is a "one of a kind", prints never made, copyrighted by Gerry Grimes.  No copies or reproductions can be made of this painting without the written explicit consent of Gerry Grimes, the artist, or his heirs.
