I've been working for days on a painting for a client. Although I don't often do custom
work, this was to be of one of my favorite subjects.
Colter Bay on Jackson Lake in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.
The painting is on a full sheet of watercolor paper, which is 22x30 inches.
I like to take photos of my work on the floor of my studio. The light there is usually pretty good.
To get the whole painting in the picture I had to stand on a step stool and then lean out,
hold my camera over the painting and shoot without reference. A lot of the
shots missed the mark and looked like this.
The painting includes the family in their boat "The Green Minnow."
This one was both a challenge and a pleasure to paint.
