Yosemite River Sketch and Planning

During our trip to Yosemite our group decided to hike to the bridge at the base of Vernal Falls. When two of the group decided to continue on to the top I took the opportunity to start planning a painting of the river, where the water from Vernal Falls meets the Merced River. I've always been interested in how artists are able to capture moving water.

I started with a VERY loose thumbnail sketch which I later developed further at home, trying to work out my values. Here is my sketch and set-up.
