A Journey Around The World – Grand Teton National Park, WY

Travel Sketching, Trip Around the World 2013

Camping at Colter Bay, WY.                                  May 23, 2013

For most of the day we were driving around the northern part of Yellowstone National Park near Mamoth Springs. There is so much to see in the park that you really could use a week just to cover the main sights.  That afternoon we headed south to Grand Teton National Park which is just ten miles south of the Yellowstone  southern park border.

My  first view of the forty mile long Teton Range was breath taking. I thought that we might see some interesting and beautiful places on this first leg of our journey to Boston but this was amazing.

The watercolor  painting I have done of the Mountain Bluebird was painted from a photograph that Lyn took.  We found that these birds were elusive and it was difficult to just get a good photo let alone sketch this bird from real life. The sketch of our campsite is typical of my loose sketch book style. This style of loose drawing is a lot of fun and offers a nice change from doing a more formal watercolor.
