It does look like a swiming pool, agreed.

Colors do vary but I followed Rob Spanglers mix of acrylics using light tan, black and medium cadmium yellow.  I mixed up several different small batches and then applied them, darkest where the water was deepest (middle and near outer banks where scouring action deepens the channel) and lighter shades where shallow.

Once you put simulated water (various choices) it looks pretty realistic.
