|Boulders on the Virgin - Zion, 8" x 10" Oil; by Greg Newbold|
Here is my second attempt at the Virgin River painted during the early afternoon at Zion National Park. It was interesting that this subject didn't seem to suffer from the dramatic shadow shifts that some of the other Zion vistas exhibited.
I think I was more successful at capturing a range of value and color than the first painting I posted last time. I like the arrangement of shapes and the contrasts of the rushing water in this one and for the most part it works. I think this subject will make a nice larger painting and I'm looking forward to taking it on again sometime.
