Yosemite National Park

Yosemite

Inspiration

A customer, who bought one of my earlier originals, commissioned a piece to depict his trip to Yosemite National Park. I worked from several pictures he'd taken and it was the unique light that he was very interested in capturing.

As a result, it was the colour and tone of the work that I focused on for this piece. The blue tone in the background really creates the sense of distance and depth. An atmosphere enhanced by the use of very light tones in the background and strong darker tones in the foreground.

The customer's feedback upon seeing the finished work: "As anticipated, it looks fantastic."
