Watercolors from the Grand Canyon

I’m finally getting around to bringing over all remaining images from the old website.  Here are the watercolors I made while traveling 14 days down the Colorado river through the Grand Canyon in September of 2008.

Some comments on the images that I’ve carried over from the old website:

October 11th, 2008 by Richard Wanderman comments on The Concert at Black Tail Canyon:

This is a wonderful painting Tim. I can feel the drop about to happen.

My reply on October 11th:

Thank you, Richard. Very interesting interpretation. You’ve made me see this image in a whole new way!

I hate to ruin it for you, but we were actually on land for this one in a side canyon called Black Tail. The red in the lower part of the composition was a large rock that rose up in front of my view (as opposed to water). Of all the Grand Canyon images, this might have been the one I struggled with the most, especially in terms of trying to get the light. In fact, I almost feel it got to the point of overkill… but I found that many in the group responded favorably to it when they were all shown at the end of the trip.

This is the watercolor I wanted for myself. I am a child of the night, this piece takes me back to peaceful dreams and being lulled to sleep by the sound of the river.

This one is really beautiful. I love the colors.
