Plein Air Moab
The first painting me and Karen did along the Colorado River.
Below is a shot of the painting in the show (18" x 24"):
Painted the above arch last year and wanted to do a larger painting at this spot (16 x 20)
(I apologize for the blurry photos. I didn't have a tripod handy when I took them)
Karen took a photo of me painting at Canyonlands Park. This place was like being at the Grand Canyon.
The above is the painting I did for the first Quick Paint. This painting sold that night. Painted it in less than 2 hours. "Last Light on the Colorado" Oil 18" x 24"
Painted on the river again before we had to turn in our paintings. The river canyon was one of my favorite things to paint there. This piece sold in the show!
My sunset painting I had in the show. Tackled painting the fleeting light on the red rocks on an 18 x 24 canvas in about a half hour. The light was completely gone when I was finishing it. I really had a blast painting this! This one also sold.
On our last day me and Karen went on a hike up to Double O arch. We really enjoyed ourselves and are looking forward to next year!
