Just got back last night from an amazing trip with my extended family to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks in Wyoming. We moved around a lot and had lots of kids to wrangle, so not much time to sketch. But I took a short time to do some watercolor sketches in my moleskine book that my lovely wife decorated for me for father's day (pictured here).
Saw lots of wildlife; buffalo, both kinds of bear, pronghorn, bald eagles, osprey and other cool little critters. The geysers were amazing. My one geyser painting here (Mammoth Springs) doesn't do them justice. I had my five year old on my knee while painting - that explains the lack of structure to the foreground boardwalk -- or a convenient excuse ;-) Maybe sometime soon I'll have more time to try and capture their amazingness.
Standing in front of Grand Prismatic Spring is a life changing experience. Highly recommended.
