Denali, Watercolours from Alaska

"Denali Sunrise"

Denali Sunrise

In early September, autumn is well on its way in Denali National Park, Alaska.  While hoping to capture a glimpse of Denali, North America’s highest mountain, i focused painting on site trying to capture the mountain light and weather played out on the multi-hued tundra. The following 3 minute video highlights the painting process.

The main base to work from was at the Wonder Lake Campground where one is dropped off by park bus as there are no cars permitted in the Park.  However, for a different view and excellent food, rest, and knowledgeable guides, we also stayed at the beautiful Camp Denali for 3 nights. More paintings can be viewed on my recent works page and many great landscape and wildlife photos from the trip can be viewed on Daisy’s blog .
