Alaska Wilderness Lodge 9″ x 12″

My husband and I had a wonderful trip to Alaska.  I’ve been doing a lot of new paintings based on photos I took there.

A few stages of the painting.


The whole study was done in about an hour.  The usual palette was used and the gessobord was coated with a dilute mixture of cadmium vermillion and sevres blue (which was dry before I began the painting).  This gives a nice warm undertone that shows through.

    1. Hi Annerose! We flew to Fairbanks, then joined a group from the Nature Conservancy. Went to Denali, Kenai Fjords National Park, took the Alaskan railroad a couple times and wound up in Anchorage. I thought about you. What magnificent landscapes the whole time. Mount McKinley is surreal — we got to see it : ) Good to be back blogging!

    1. Hi Susan! Thanks and it’s good to be back. I really enjoyed our wilderness “odyssey”. We were REALLY away from it all. The scenery was just spectacular… no photo or painting can come close to conveying how it really is. Hope you had a good break, too. (I think I remember you said you would be taking one. )
