Day 5 of notans

Notan sketches of a scene from Yellowstone

For this set of notan sketches I used a photo from our Yellowstone trip. It’s an impressive vista with mountains, rolling hills, dramatic clouds, and a road leading into the picture. The only thing it’s missing is a family of bears!

The atmospheric perspective in the reference photo sets up some great blues in the distance that’s in sharp contrast with warm gold grasses in the foreground. This is definitely one for the “paint some day” pile.


Focused practice project parameters: complete 100 landscape notans. 3 minutes per notan, 5 notans per session, 20 sessions to reach 100.
