DIS stands for Denver Illustration Salon, a collective of local illustrators and artists.
The trip was special for me. Ever since the Spring/Summer Medieval Fantasy Photo Shoot in May, I have been wanting to get back there to take more photos when the foliage is in all its glory. Plus, it's just a Dam cool place. (Pun intended.)
After much scouting - and of course, there are SO many cool spots just along the walking path, the choice of where to stop and paint is not easy - we settled in and set up around the top side of the Dam.
I feel like I'm starting to get the hang of plein air painting, and excited to keep improving.
Here are some photos from the trip:
|The Falls. |
We'll have to return again
to paint here!

scenery near the start of the trail.
|Great scenery everywhere. |
Hey, where's Little John?
|David checks out the view from the |
top of the Dam - and the progress from
the other artists.

(Clay was situated around the other side
of some trees.)
|The weather started moving in, |
just about the time we were ready to pack it up.
Well okay - we could have stayed there forever...

I am sure that the sketches, and the reference photos, will lead to even more fun art! Stay tuned!
