Painting for three full days in Guadalupe Mountains National Park – oh yeah! It was indeed an awesome experience for Chuck and Barbara. While the park is very isolated in far west Texas, once there, the main mountainous features, like El Capitan and the highest-in-Texas Guadalupe Peak, are easily visible from the highway and visitor centers. Desert flora is the norm, from the flat surrounding plain and on up the rocky slopes. Sunlight produces wonderful patterns of light and shadow which make painting a delight. Chuck’s output is shown under the Art of the West tab under the Artwork button. Studio work is planned to further explore this inspiring mountain range.
My first painting video! All the preparation for a Quick Draw that didn’t happen turned into a perfect opportunity to make a fast-paced video. Check it out below. The painting took about 45 minutes in real time, but this was sped up in the movie for entertainment value.
