I was inspired by many things during our 4 day backpacking trip into the Beartooth Mountains. The water in the lakes along East Rosebud Creek are a rich color of blue green.
Not really trying to create something realistic - I hoped to create something representational in the studio.
I painted the background panel using Setacolor Transparent Paints. Once the paint was dry, I was ready to block print using my hand cut rubber stamps. I used a combination of transparent and opaque Setacolor fabric paints to achieve the undulating pattern of wind on the lake.
