I spent my summer vacation touring the national parks of Arizona and Utah. We'll start with the Grand Canyon. These were painted in a heavyweight black paper scrapbook. The dark paper seemed to suit the subject as there was so much light bouncing around in the shadows. I "borrowed" the black paper idea from one of my former students Chris Sears.

These are my demo sketches from our landscape sketching class trip to Eaton Canyon in Pasadena. Good times.

And for those of you who have been asking for higher res images, the middle one is for you.
