Salt Lake City-Day 3

Being a midwestern girl, the sight of mountains from my breakfast table is stunning–even when I am looking at them over non-descript urban architecture. As I mentioned wasatch inspirationyesterday, the Wasatch Range will not go down as the most memorable mountains. That said, they are mountains. And over my scrambled eggs, I sketched 3rd wasatch abstractvarious abstractions based on shapes including shadows. Last night, I pulled the sketch into the Tayasui drawing program and added color in layers. I enjoyed the process and challenge of editing detail and choosing which lines to leave and which to delete. I’m looking forward to further experimenting with the palette moving further from representational color and into more emotional and intellectual choices to see where this will lead the different elements. I am already looking at making new decisions based on breaking the piece into a grid.
