I started on this adventure unknowing exactly what I would be doing, besides driving. I like doing that,. Back 4 months or so I worried about What could happen, then some where along thought I I thought about that too much SOMETHING Bad would happen. SO I started on this journey to see those places I had never seen. National Park - Arches, Bryce and Zion.
I took out my pastels and painted at Zion. It was a cool morning, but upon arriving there, it was in the 80’s . After hiking a bit, I caught the bus back to my car and proceeded to sit up. The process takes too long, I thought. It was hard not to paint given the Beautiful Views. An hour into drawing something, I was sold. I could do this for hours.
I lasted about 3 hours, then the heat, forgetting not to drink water, exhausted my energy to paint. I have a couple of sketches; I will post the photo here.
I wondered if there were a quicker way to paint in pastel, perhaps a different easel, a different carrying case. One day at a time. I’ll try again tomorrow. ~ at another forest up the road. Follow me on this Journey.
