Lower Falls of the Yellowstone
42 x 60″
The crowning jewel of my thesis project is my painting of the Lower Falls of Yellowstone National Park.
If you watched my YouTube video, you probably saw it on there. But here it is again.
As you can tell, it is 3.5 feet wide by 5 feet tall.
Now you may wonder how it is that I was able to paint on watercolor paper that large.Watercolor paper does come in large rolls that are 10 yds long. I wasn’t about to attempt that! What I did was stretch the paper like a canvas onto stretcher bars. Then I painted. Sometimes with a really big brush (#30 round) and sometimes with a small one (my favorite #6).
It took me probably a total of 30 days over 6 months to paint but I did it! And you know what, I loved every minute of it.
Here I am with the completed painting.
