Pack your bags! Let’s head out to one of the greatest places to visit in the western US. My husband and I were fortunate to have visited in 2015 and hope to get back out that way again soon. This painting came about due to my spring wanderlust. My grandmother always called it ‘cabin fever’ and she is right, I need to travel again!
Several reference photos were used to achieve a varied composition. The bottom photo is from the free photo sharing site: Unsplash and the top three photos are from our trip in 2015 that my husband took https://photos-as-art.com/
I created my landscape painting using my 9 x 12 Arches Cold Pressed 300 lb watercolor pad and the following watercolors: Burnt Sienna, Burnt Umber, Ultramarine, Yellow Ochre, Raw Umber, Gamboge, Terre Verte, Scarlet Lake, Phthalo Blue and Jaynes Gray.
The sun is shining, it’s a beautiful day and it’s time to start planning that summer trip!
I would love to be heading out west, how about you? What is your dream destination?
