We travel to Yellowstone National park in Lower Falls.  This is my third 45" X 45" painting and I must say I am beginning to really enjoy working this large.  I poured the acrylic paint to get it started then came in with a brush for finishing work.  By reducing the amount of time a brush touches the paper, the amount of glow when the light bounces off the paper is really enhanced.

I loved how the yellow in Yellowstone National Park really pops on the light side of the canyon but becomes subdued with blue and burnt sienna tones on the shadowed side. The river too goes from nearly white where it reflects the light on the bright side to deep blues and purples in the shade.  It is like there are two worlds hidden in one.  The deep canyon lets us see both of these worlds at once.

  1. Again, a great painting and thanks for sharing your process. I must try pouring again, think it helps not to get too bogged down in the details. The size is as grand as the canyon! Give you credit for working that large...something I've never attempted.

    1. This is my third at this size and several 24 x 34. I have found it freeing to eork large, much to my surprise.


I look forward to hearing from you. - April
