"Red Rock Canyon" 10x8" Oil on Canvasboard by Richard Robinson
The scene. Again, being close to tall mountains their shadows move very quickly so it was important to get the blockin done as quickly as possible...
The block in - dark and light families.
Happy to be painting again.
An amazing place on a giant scale.
I finally met up with some other painters today. Got up at 6 (which is pretty good for me) and paid a visit to starbucks on my way to the Canyons. Apparently they don't do a flat white coffee. It's called a wisto or a misto or something like that. Tasted like a flat white to me. So I was painting down in this canyon by 7:30am and a couple hours later Ned Mueller turned up which was fantastic (I think I talked his ear off) and then Richard Smith about an hour later. By then a freezing cold wind was blowing through the canyon which sandblasted us and our work leaving lots of tiny white flecks of bare canvas showing on mine which was weird, so we packed up and I visited Red Rocks convention centre to see if I could practice my speech there but they weren't ready yet so I'm back in the hotel room patching up my painting and, well, blogging. The conference starts tomorrow so I'll be trying to get an early night for the 6:30 start.
Here are some short videos I took of the area:
(All very shaky because they're taken on the iphone.)
