Eric Falls, and gets up again

I am attending Plein Air Live, a virtual painting conference. At the end of each day of the conference, we are invited to paint something from a video. In this case, it is a waterfall in the Adirondacks. I was inspired to use a limited palette for this painting, which was just red oxide, yellow oxide, ultramarine blue, and white. The nice thing about this color scheme is that these pigments are cheap! I don't hesitate to put globs of it on the palette.

Eric Rhoads, the publisher of Plein Air Magazine was telling this story of how he was painting on location by these falls, and he slipped and fell, and was knocked unconscious for a few hours! Thankfully he regained consciousness and was able to get home.
