As I was waiting for my Desert Anvil painting to dry I have begun this Gouache Watercolor Painting, 14 1/2"x21 1/2" depicting the Fire Hole River in Yellowstone. This is a return to my Yellowstone project. I have in mind to put some grazing Buffalo across the river on the left. I have blocked in the painting and begu detailing the backlit mountain ridge and the trees in the back. Now for the river and fore grasses as well as the Buffalo.

Gary, it looks great already! I really like the power of the cool water colors next to the warm grasses.

The Desert Anvil painting is awesome Gary! It is so dynamic and gives a real sense of how powerful Nature can be and how small we can feel in it.

I love that you're going to include one of my favorite animals (buffalo) in this painting. I'm already in love with the serpentine river.
