Salt River along Apache Trail

A painting of the Salt River as seen from the Apache Trail approaching Roosevelt Dam. - Nancy Boudreau

Painted on January 17th, 2009 for sale directly from the artist. Check in again for more Arizona landscapes to come in the next two weeks.

This is an acrylic painting, 5" x 7" on gessoed hardboard, sealed with a clear gloss gel. This painting, and the previous four paintings, were done using only eight colors. Being on vacation and not wanting to fly out my full compliment of paints, I purchased a set of tubes from Golden Artist Colors, which comes with charted information on mixing. It also comes with a very good booklet explaining the qualities of color and how paints can be used to convey a depth of qualities. I recommend Golden paints, and have been using them with satisfaction for the past two years.
