Paterson Great Falls in Watercolor

Art, History, New Jersey, Outdoor Adventure, watercolor

This 77-foot waterfall, located in Paterson, New Jersey was formed by the latest glaciation event, which also carved Glacial Lake Passaic. During the industrial revolution, the power of these falls was harnessed to power manufacturing companies and locomotives. Today, this area is preserved for its beauty and history. I decided to paint this waterfall not because of its history or size, but because of an idea I had for a sepia style silhouette light effect.

This painting is available on Etsy as a print or original.
