Google Street Views: The Grand Canyon, tonal variations

day 1: Planning the destination
We're not leaving the Grand Canyon National Park quite yet. In fact, we're going to hike back to the very same spot as the previous set-of-posts.

In the real world, even the same spot on another day will look different; the light shifts, the clouds lift... (think Monet's haystacks). So, even though our Google Street Views travel destination will be the same, my resulting painting(s) won't be.

I'm excited to explore how color (tonal variations) affects light & mood re The Grand Canyon.
