I completed this painting back in Kentucky from some really, REALLY rough field sketches. South of me in the Red River Gorge/Natural Bridge area you can see views like this everywhere. I wish I had brought my sketches down here with me so you can see just how rough they are. I love to do really fast rough "thumbnail" or very small sketches on site/outdoors and then take photos. When I get back to the studio, it's so fun turning them into paintings. Believe it or not, the sketches help me remember the feeling of the moment just as well as the photo does. Maybe more so!
