I dip a dry brush into Titanium White and tentatively paint delicate wisps onto Cobalt Blue Wyoming skyscapes
Emboldened, I fill my brush and paint curving lines reaching towards the sky
With a stippler brush, I add tiny dots of white next to bold brushstrokes
I gently dab on larger spots with a soft sponge from the sea
After adding darker highlights, fluffy, transient herds wander across Wyoming skyscapes
My brush flicks back and forth with increasing pressure until the sky is filled
My work done for the day, I dream of the masterpieces I will create in tomorrow’s skies
These photographs were all taken from the passenger seat while we drove along the Buffalo Bill Cody Scenic Byway in western Wyoming. It can be challenging to take good pictures while in motion, but this highway offers stunning landscapes around every corner.
