Jenny Lake – 7″ x 10″ Watercolor on Masa
Jenny Lake is in the Grand Teton National Park, in Wyoming. I took this picture when I was there in 2009. I also sat on the edge of that lake and did some watercolor plein air paintings. It was not as clear and bright as usual, because they had some fires north of the park and the smoke was making the sky hazy and the mountain views a little muted.
This painting was fun to do on the masa paper. I figured I better practice painting mountains, since I’ll be back in the Tetons in a couple weeks and I intend to do a lot of plein air. It’s going to feel so good to get into the cooler mountain air. It was 114 degrees here yesterday, not counting the heat index. Whew!
I tried to find some photos of Jenny Lake on the web and this is probably the best. Most of the links went to the lodge and you don’t want to see a bunch of photos of a motel, right?
