This particular subject was demonstrated for my online painting class. The Grand Canyon can be an overwhelming arrangement of puzzle pieces for the artist to sort out. An essential skill for a new art student is to resist painting any details too soon.
What attracted me to this scene was the beautiful warm rich tones reflecting into the shadow shapes of the canyon formations.
This painting is a 5x7 inch image on 6x8 inch Canson illustration board with a clean white boarder. It will ship with an 8x10 inch pre-cut mat so that it is ready to frame upon arrival.
