My first trip to Yosemite with my parents and family. What an amazing place that I will have to visit again and again. I was lucky enough to have some time to do a few color sketches.
It rained the first couple of days that we were there : ( I decided I needed to paint something, so this is the view looking out from the kitchen. Both are painted with acrylics and a dab of white gouache. This took about 1 hour and 15 min.
This river is just off the hiking trail to Vernal Falls. Ah...so much to paint, so little time. There should be a lot of trees and smaller boulders painted in the background, but it was time to go. About 1 hour.
