I'm continuing to do Red Rock painting in watercolor. I went with Valerie Orlemann on a plein air excursion up Cedar Canyon a while back. I started this one:
I am still working on it. We didn't have to hike, but painted it pretty much from the trail near the road. Valerie paints in oils and her pieces are remarkable. Here is another I completed in my studio from a photo taken that day. This hill is just left of the hill in the above painting:
Again, I am still working on this. I want to add more debth to the shadows and a bit more greenery to the foreground. You can tell I am more light-handed in my studio than I am on site.

Here is another I am working on. The photo was included in Roland Lee's student packet in his Red Rock class. He suggested we could continue doing Red Rock with these photos. I couldn't resist:
You can't beat a great photo. As you can see, I am still working the foreground on this one. Valerie and I plan on doing more plein air excusions.


  1. Nice work, Lisa. You have some wonderful mountain scenes. Thanks for sharing. YOu may not remember me but I met you at Touchan last Spring. I admire your work. Hope to stay in touch and hopefully paint with you someday. Continue the great work you are doing.

    1. Thank you. I have more recent items to add. I see you are in the DWS. I will look for you at the meetings.
