Painting the parks of UtahPosted: August 11, 2014
It’s been a grand summer for travel and for my final week of summer holiday I’ve been invited to paint the five National Parks of Utah. The landscape in this part of the world is jaw-droppingly beautiful. The first park is Capitol Reef, a hidden gem from what I’ve read. Not as popular or crowded as Bryce or Zion, and that makes it the perfect place to start.
It’s a whole new ball game for me to paint in this heat and dryness, not to mention a whole new palette of colours for these red rocks. This is about as far as you can get from the colours of Newfoundland, and it make take a few more tries to get used to painting here but it is quite a thrill to try to capture this in paint!
