Zion a Place for Rest and Reguge, drama in watercolour by Desiree
This lovely plein air of dramatic cliffs, reflected in the rushing melt water in Zion National Park, trees catching the light and a terrific sense of place, dropped through my letterbox this morning. It really catches the drama and scale of the scene, the cliffs towering above. Her title shows her feelings for this place that come through in the work. I know what she means with the title - I have the same feeling at the coast. It's lovely to see all these places that are special to us, so very different with each country.
Desiree describes sitting in a cold wind, heroically working on this - It was well worth it wasn't it? :>)
There are great details on the back of the flowers and even park stamps that she has used as a frame for one. It came through the post safely with not even a smudge or wrinkle.
Her use of watercolour is confident and assured.
