Tulabi Falls by kach-back Tulabi Falls by kach-back
This is an acrylic painting of Tulabi Falls which is located in Nopiming Park in Manitoba Canada. The reference series of photos for this painting were taken in 2008 on an exploring trip with my eldest daughter Anne. The painting was started in 2009 and finally completed in 2013.

It is 61 x 76 cm (24 x 30 in) done on a Winsor & Newton Artists' Canvas Board, with Liquitex Professional Acrylic Paints.

*** Edit *** I took it with my Sony RX-100 and uploaded a much larger version of it.

Thank you so much! It's a well known spot here, and the actual painting is for sale in a gallery here in Winnipeg.  There has been some interest so I am hoping it ends up in a nice place.  Thanks for the :+fav: of it as well. :hug:

Thanks, that one sat for quite a while before I found the courage and motivation to finish it.  It is sitting on the wall in a gallery for sale in downtown Winnipeg so who knows it might find a nice home at some point. :-)

I feel like I'm there. And as someone who does a lot of realistic drawings, but can't find the patience to do the same thing with paint, I can appreciate what an accomplishment this is. The thumbnail read as a photograph! Very great, time-consuming work. Your attention to detail is inspiring.

Thank you very much on all fronts here, for the great comments and the :+fav: of this one.  I learned a lot working on this one, and it hangs in a gallery near downtown here for sale, so we'll see if anyone sees it in person and wants to buy it.

Ha thank you, in person it looks more painterly but when photographed and reduced it does look more like a photo.  I am glad you liked it, and thanks for the :+fav:'s of all of them. :D
