Hi everyone my water scene is made by using Woodland scenic realistic water left to dry the I applied the realistic water effects,when that dried out I dry brushed white acrylic paint on top of the waves.The water wheel and gates had extra effects added and heavy white paint applied. This was a very expensive way to achieve this scene there are cheaper ways of doing this.

I really like the underwater colouring.  :thumbs

Fantastic piece of work Kevin.  Could you possibly go into more detail as to how you achieved this effect for those, like me, who haven't a clue how to use the Woodland Scenics products.

It may have been expensive Kevin but, from where I'm sitting, it looks excellent - below the sluices.......:roll:.

My only comment is that the water above the wheel and sluice would have been flat calm - unless it's a windy day.

If you look at a weir, even on a fast flowing river, the water backed up by the weir is glass-smooth, except, as I say, when the surface is distrubed by wind.

It might be of course, that your scene is close to a waterfall and the river hasn't had time to calm down ...............:roll:

It's just to represent a river close to a water fall but did not have room to add all the scene,the water is a lot calmer under the viaduct.Thanks for the comment Kev.
