"Down in Front" 9" x 12" (SOLD)



This is close to being one of the first and best scenes that I saw while visiting Yosemite. I got there late, around 1 in the afternoon, and by 2 pm I was at one of the highest places in the park called Glacier Point. I'm working on a larger piece from the same vantage point that I will hopefully finish by Friday but will have to juggle a bunch of illustration work in between them. Click on the image for a larger view.

Of all of the images I have seen of Yosemite I have not seen this one - nice choice! I love that the waterfall in not centered between the trees (that would have been my mistake), it has a very naturalistic feel about it.

Jeremy,
I always have had this problem of wanting to include too much. What I liked the most about this scene was the ultra distant canyon behind the trees on the left. I also wanted to include the smaller tree over the edge of the foreground on the right. Where do you stop. If I don't include things like this, I feel like the painting won't be as interesting.
