I had a little time to paint today, and I thought I’d share what I’m working on right now. It’s in one of my favorite spots (I have many), about an hour and a half from my house, but like many places, it falls into the category of so close and yet so far away, as there just doesn’t seem to be enough time to ‘do it all’.
This particular formation (Reynolds) is usually swarming with rock climbers in the summer. Like many of the formations at Vedauwoo, it’s covered with cracks, balancing boulders and incredible changes in color and texture.
I love the rocks, the reflection in the water, and the light on the trees. I still have some areas to finish, for some reason the mid ground trees are a challenge, and I want more detail and accuracy in the rocks.
Hopefully I’ll be able to visit in person soon and do some plein air painting too.
