Petroglyphs in Wyoming

This is another commission that I finished this week and mailed off yesterday. The work is a 14″ x 19″ watercolor on 140 lb Cold Press Paper. The imagery is from a shot of petroglyphs in Wyoming (one of the most beautiful places in the U.S.). It took a practice painting and some studies to figure out how to complete this one. Eventually I learned that it would take masking fluid and many layers to achieve what I wanted. I really like the way that it turned out and thought I would share! It was fun to work on and now I think I will tackle some compositions from our trip to Portland. šŸ˜‰

For fun, here is a beautiful shot that my Mom took during one of our visits to Jackson Hole and Dubois, Wyoming….several years ago. I am standing in a field of grass at the Yellowstone National Park.
