New Traditional Watercolour Landscape: Buttermilk Falls

New Traditional Watercolour Landscape: Buttermilk Falls published on

This weeks’s traditional painting is of Buttermilk Falls in Ithaca, New York, USA.

Buttermilk Falls, Ithaca, NY, watercolour by J.S.RoweAt least that’s what we think it is…  I painted this landscape (waterscape?) this week from a photo I took few years ago at one of Ithaca’s amazing gorges. I originally believed it was one of the lovely spots along the long walk up the Taughanock Gorge, but my family and friends are almost, but not quite, sure it is _probably_ Buttermilk Falls in Ithaca.
So if you can identify this positively for me I’d appreciate it. <3

Reference Photo for Buttermilk Falls I took a few years agoAnd here is the original photo (much reduced in size) which I used as reference for the Buttermilk Falls watercolour painting. Enjoy!


This watercolor was created traditionally using Winsor Newton Professional watercolours  on 140 lb. Fabriano watercolor paper.
