After more than 90 days at home, we got out, and drove 4.5 hours to Yosemite National Park for the day. Yosemite just opened up and issues day passes so they can limit how many visitors they have everyday.
Here are some sketches from when the car stopped for construction or to pick up lunch on the way.
When you drive that much in a day, and drive back, all you have time for is a couple of short hikes, lunch and quick sketches. Still, it was really amazing to be in Yosemite, even for a very short time.
And just that day, while I was away trying to capture waterfalls in quick sketches, look what arrived in my inbox: a new course from Shari Blaukopf on sketching and painting water in all it’s forms.
I just finished watching it and I love that she breaks water down into painting techniques that you can use to see and capture all sorts of water effects and reflections. I guess I am just going to have to Yosemite and paint those waterfalls again this summer.
