Loose and Fast – 20 minutes Challenge

Canyon, mountain, rock, sky

Yesterday I was in the process of painting a lot of details on one of my Still Life paintings when I received an e-mail from my son. He is traveling for business to Colorado this week; he visited very interesting places and wanted to share great sightseeings. I was pretty tired from all that meticulous details of my other painting and I needed to loosen up. I took one of his pictures and challenged myself for 20 minutes. Result is here: Colorado Mountains.

This beautiful place is hiding between mountains in Sedona (Arizona). It became tourists vacation spot in early 30’s . The creek is polishing the orange rocks to the point that they turned out to be smooth and slippery. Families like to come here in the hot Arizona Summers and enjoy the cool water of the creek. I chose to paint this particular spot as the rocks there are different not only in structure but in colors as well ( smooth layered sandy rocks vs cold choppy lava created giants)
