Sketchbook Journeys - Colorado: Page 4

I really enjoyed painting this sketch of Garden of the Gods. It's such a spectacular place, and no painting could ever do it justice, but this page reminds me of how I felt, being there in that awesome place.

This page is a little different than the others. I didn't use my ink pen for the drawing. I did a quick sketch using a 4B pencil, then painted it later back at the house.

Painting a mass of green foliage is always a challenge. I try to vary the greens, and add yellow, red, blue, and brown for interest.

Coming tomorrow: more Garden of the Gods, plus a waterfall!
