San Juan Mountain Path

Sketch by Sarah Sullivan of a San Juan Mountain Path

San Juan Mountain Path

The sun was intense as I stood in the shade and sketched. Even through my dark glasses the shade from the pine trees that fell across the path contrasted strongly with sunny areas of the mountain path. When I got back indoors, I was surprised at the intense colors I had just used to depict this scene. Maybe I should paint while wearing heavy sunglasses more often.

This is a 9 x 9-inch gouache and watercolor pencil sketch on black paper.
