"Remembering Arches National Park" mixed media painting by Sharon Lynn Williams

"Remembering Arches National Park", mixed media and collage, 12 x 16"

In the winter time, I often will work from plein air oil paintings I have done to create colourful work in mixed media. This is one such painting. I was trying to capture the incredible reflected light that happens underneath the amazing natural arches in Arches National Park. Beginning with a random sprinkling of collage elements, allows unexpected things to appear and become part of the painting, something that I always enjoy, as it really allows me to be creative.

This looks so familiar, I think I've been at this exact arch. Love the bright, playful aspect of this painting!

This is lovely. The first impression I had was the beautiful light under the arch, and the deep blue shadows.
