Finished painting from Zion National Park in Utah. I got a chance to drive out there for a whirl wind day trip with my roommate Mason a few months ago. I've been super into California Impressionists like Edgar Payne, Granville Redmond and John Marshall Gamble lately. This was a bit of a crack at that style of more distinct brush strokes, flattening out some areas of color and including how vibrant the colors can be with the effects light. Definitely a style I'll be trying to explore more of.
