Focusing on transitional light and land forms .. that magic time as dusk starts to fall .. the last colors are darkly saturated.  Tricky to paint the subtle bands of ascending color .. someday I would like to be able to paint that pellucid atmosphere .. where your pupils are open because of the dimness .. but you are able to perceive 'more'.

Here is a previous version .. I thought I was finished .. but it kept nagging me to go further :)

And an even earlier version .. it has improved quite a bit :)


'Erosional Beauty'

On the east side of Capitol Reef you will find a myriad of beautiful clay formations .. sculptures made from the ancient sea beds that once covered this region.  These small studies are very satisfying to do .. a sense of accomplishment because they are not as stressful to finish like a large complex piece.
