Faced with the amazing subject of the Grand Canyon to paint, I chose to focus on a small part of it, a limited landscape that appears in the foreground. The largest part of the canyon appears in the distance, and is not included in the space of this painting. A path leads toward the gorge and to the left of the path there is a combination of rocks, among which can be found a small cave. Beyond the foreground is another slope. And in the distance is another rock that is red in color. It is the first study I made, attempting to capture the greatness of the Grand Canyon. Other paintings will follow, that deal with the canyon itself, and that present interesting aspects of this geological phenomenon.
