Grand Canyon of Yellowstone Lower Falls
5" x 8" Oil on panel.
Here is yet another study from Yellowstone. It is the view of the "Grand Canyon" of Yellowstone from Artists Point. Even overrun by tourists with cameras, Artists Point is a great overlook. There is even a display of a Thomas Moran painting of the falls. He was part of the marketing machine that sold the National Parks to America. He uses a nice bit of "artistic license" to put some hot springs features in the same view. The color and shapes in the canyon and the size of the falls make this a great view.
