Garden of the Gods in July

ARTIST: Josue Salazar, United States

ARTIST STATEMENT: This painting is of the unique rock formation found in the Garden of the Gods Park in Colorado. It was made with gouache paint, and I wanted to capture the brightness of the day so I did not hold back on using my brightest greens for the foreground of the picture. I used multiple layers of gouache paint in order to capture the textures of the rocks. Overall, this was a very fulfilling painting and I’m quite happy with it.

MEDIA: Gouache
SURFACE: Delta Series – Extra Heavyweight – 270 gsm – Ivory – Cold Press Finish
