Last summer we spent a couple of weeks traveling around the western part of the US, visiting states such as Wyoming and Arizona and Utah. Open space, loneliness, long drives through incredible country. This is a photo I took out of the car window on the way from Laramie, WY, to Grand Teton National Park, where we stayed for several days.
I pushed the colors in post production, to pull out greens, reds, and blues. The view of the house / barn was fascinating – and I expect the view from it is even better, rather than zipping by in a car. Anyway, I’ve decided to do some sketches, in ink then color, and hopefully an unlined watercolor based on elements of this photo. Below is this morning’s sketch.
