Eye Candy for Today: Samuel Palmer’s waterfalls

Though both are striking, I find 19th century artist Samuel Palmer’s watercolor and gouache study of this dramatic landscape even more compelling than his finished oil.

The watercolor is 17×21 inches (44x53cm), the oil is smaller at 16×10 inches (40x26cm).
