"Rocky Canyon" ©


What captured my attention with this view was the idea of a pool of water, too small to make it over the cliff down the falls.  At first I thought it would be great fun to paint the rocks but without being able to paint alla prima as usual, it's much more difficult to keep my place.  I should explain a bit, we are under construction and my easel is about 20 feet from the main work.  The otters I wrote about previously were much less of a distraction.  Too bad they can't lay tile.  

Oil on canvas,  18" X 24"

Wow... you must have hiked up a long way to find a wonderful view like that!
And what an unusual perspective... Terrific!
My favorite parts aside from your daring composition... the delicate tree on the left over the beautiful farground colors.
