Water Spiral

This is for Wordpress challenge August 2010. It's oil on 8x10 canvas board.

The reference photo had a girl dipping her hand into a waterfall. For me, there was too much going on in the picture. I thought, since I am doing a van Gogh style painting at Anastasia Art, I would use this opportunity to try a van Gogh technique here. I liked his signature spiral style, as seen in Cypresses and Starry Night. So I figured I would do a quick study using the spiral for water falling into the pool.
