Jenny Lake Grand Teton National Park Painting

'Glow on the Lake' 16x20 pastel
For this painting I did an underpainting using Cretacolor Pure Pigments to do a wash. The colors were much more vibrant and intense than watercolor and I was excited by the cool drips in the underpainting. This was a scene I saw on a hike at Jenny Lake.....this was the same hike that I saw the BEAR but that is another story! It was very late afternoon and at one point I looked across the lake and the trees were just glowing with this yellow light....everything else was dark. It was an awesome sight!
