David Hockney-Grand Canyon

I have been thinking about painting canyons and hoo doos since I visited Bryce and Zion National Parks last year.  I was very taken with these two paintings of the Grand Canyon by David Hockney, (showing now at The MET, I enjoyed it). The colors are so vibrant and beautiful and really capture the light and shadow to the extreme.  I love that he painted them on smaller panels and put them together in a grid. The perspective really helps you to feel the depth of the canyon. Here is my inspiration, just need to get back to my studio!
