Not much painting gets done during the summer vacation months, but I found myself with a couple free hours with the house to myself today and was able to paint! I finished up a watercolor that I started back in May. I created this painting as a companion piece to go along with my last painting Emerald Oasis. Both paintings were based on photos from Kings Canyon National Park and I matted and framed them to match.
My latest painting is called Veiled Cascade. What drew me to the scene was the sharp contrast of sunlight and the shadows in the woods. The light and dark areas lead your eyes around the painting in a circle, centering finally on the trickling waterfall.
