Lone Pine

I’ve just completed my last watercolor painting for 2018. Entitled Lone Pine, this painting is based on a photograph I took in Kings Canyon National Park, in California. The pine on the edge of the cliff, as well as the trees on the far right, have been burned black by fire. In fact, the distant mountains are in a haze created by the fires that were ongoing in Yosemite when we were there. I thought the contrast between the stark, burnt trees and the soft, hazy mountains made a striking image.
