Landscape: Yosemite


This is a colored pencil painting I completed early last fall. It was inspired by the Hudson River School artist Albert Bierstadt’s “Yosemite.” Mine is a more simplified composition which uses brighter colors, and it’s done in colored pencil while Bierstadt’s is oil. But I love the Hudson River School and just had to try something to give it my own spin.

Here’s Bierstadt’s “Yosemite.”
