"Watch Your Step!"


A turnout in beautiful Mesa Verde National Park is the subject of this watercolor that I painted as a demonstration in my class. I've wanted to paint it for a long time because of catching the light just right at the perfect time of day (late afternoon, in my opinion) and the misty depth that was so appealing about the scene. As always, I started in the background and sky and came forward from there. When I got to the foreground rocks I tried to leave the whites wherever possible, because once they are gone, they are gone! The background required some adjusting after I painted the lights and darks of the foreground. This is one of my favorite kinds of paintings to do.
