A beautiful piece by my new friend. The hills in Eastern Oregon and Idaho are spectacular!
We came back to Idaho from Oregon today and made a couple of sketching stops. It was boiling hot, around 29degrees C or 90F and we were on a tight schedule so only had enough time for a quickie or two. This was drawn from a rest stop in the mountains on The Oregon Trail, at Burnt River – at one point we were over 4,000 feet up.
I scribbled this in oil bars onto a canvas sheet prepared with oil-based litho/relief ink squeegeed on at random and left to dry.
