Today is the last day of the Grand Canyon watercolors. Some of these didn't get finished in time (when the raft leaves, the raft LEAVES.) The average time for one of these paintings was about 30 minutes--the detailed ones (Havasu, Deer Creek, etc.) were closer to 45 minutes. Some of them, like Dinosaur Beach (below) were more like 15 minutes. It's fun to paint under the clock, it makes it into a game. And, unless you have a really long trip scheduled, it's the only way to paint on-the-spot in Grand Canyon.
