Snowy Colorado River

Winter Colorado River Bank
Watercolor on sketch paper, 8.5″ x 5.5″

Traveling through the mountains of Colorado on a train gives many different sights, such as this one in a canyon with the Colorado river passing through it.

This was first drawn with a fountain pen that I was recently given for my birthday. The ink blended into the watercolor in most places because it was a brown and was not waterproof, so that helped it not be obtrusive. In the open snowy area are a few brown trees are just the ink with no watercolor. Most of the paint used was Payne’s grey and sepia, with a little burnt sienna and some dark yellow ochre.
