Vernal Falls, Yosemite

Preliminary watercolor sketch 

Detailed watercolor sketch
Monochromatic sketch

Yosemite is a wonderland of sheer size, beauty and stunning vistas that marvels more than
4 million visitors annually. The grandeur of Yosemite cannot be described in a photograph or a painting.
It has to be seen to be believed; experienced to be understood. It would touch you in a way that no 
worldly marvel has touched you before.

"Within its boundaries are huge granite crags carved by glaciers, stunning waterfalls, meadows
carpeted in bright flowers,throngs of wild life -- and giant sequoia trees reaching 
200 feet
into the sky, a sight not soon forgotten." (AAA World)
