Zion's Peaks

When I began to paint one of my travel photos of Zion National Park's spectacular red rock peaks,
it occurred to me that this was the perfect venue for using the DPW 'rectangular (challenge) method' to block in the rich colors.
Before I knew it the painting was finished. I am really happy with the outcome.

  2. Wow Jean!! This is spectacular.You're so right,the brushstrokes are just perfect for this weeks challenge.I love the values you've used on the rocks.

  3. Beautiful Jean!I loved the color variations in the rocks.
