Brush Up on Zion

Have a weekend workshop at Zion National Park coming up. Painted there last year and was challenged by the shear awesomeness of the place. I took some pics, so I took them out and made up a scene. Tried to find a main shape and add the foreground for an area of focus. It was fun and can't wait to get there this weekend.

The Farming Engine

We painted this morning in Woodland CA. There is plenty of farmland here and also silos. The grains and rice are big crops. I love this kind of scene with all its verticals and horizontals. It is tempting to want to bone out all of the pipes, walkways and cross bars. I put some of them in but then washed over it all with cobalt blue to pull it together. The early morning had fog and was chilly. It soon warmed up and was clear and sunny.
