Portraits of National Parks - #5 Grand Teton National Park, Wy


Simple shapes and a perception of depth, these are the two key points I kept in mind while painting for this one. I laid out the basic drawing with the thinned paint in the hues of burnt sienna. Once satisfied with the layout, I painted the entire surface with only three values, both bookends and a middle tone. This helped me make the color decisions for the different areas and planes.

Rest is pretty much right here. Using thick layers of paint it was a delightful exercise to enjoy and recreate a nature-scape. Hope you'd enjoy it.

Grand Teton National Park is in the state of Wyoming. It encompasses the Teton mountain range, the 4,000-meter Grand Teton peak, and the valley known as Jackson Hole.

It’s a popular destination in summer for mountaineering, hiking, backcountry camping and fishing, linked to nearby Yellowstone National Park by the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway.
