Waterfall at Sylvan Pass - Yellowstone.



Waterfall at Sylvan Pass - Yellowstone.

8x6in oil on canvas panel   $125.  SOLD

This was painted from one of my watercolor sketches.
I am going to paint this again as I do not feel I captured
the correct height.
I am enjoying painting landscapes with water in them.

  4. Who's to know? Just you. This is wonderful. Very lively Julie. All of your recent landscapes have been spectacular. I hope you don't mind, but I gave a different twist to your fracturing technique in my post this morning. I was funning on a not so funny topic: when drawings just don't happen.

    1. I enjoyed your "Fracturing." Been there - done that!!!
      I complement you for having the ability to tear the "not quite right" ones up. I am a huge believer in it.
      A friend of mine kept what she considered failures in a folder, but when she died her family put them out for sale and she would have had a fit if she had known anyone would see them. It weakened the perception of her skills and the gallery owners were rightfully upset.
      Big lesson for me - ever since then when I have a failure I say "off with its head" and out it goes!

  6. Another beautiful waterscape Julie! You've done an amazing job with the fracturing of the water and your pine trees are beautiful. I live in a forest (just about) and haven't wanted to paint the pine trees but you've inspired me. This is beautiful!

  9. Julie, I am enjoying your landscapes but have been out of town and unable to comment. This one really speaks to me, love the depth you have achieved in the waters. The sunflowers are another favorite of mine. You do such beautiful work, I anticipate your post each day.
