Zion Painting Trip

Last weekend I was able to go on a painting/sketching/reference gathering trip with some BYU illustration and animation students and faculty to Zion National Park. They are doing a student project on environment design and will be using the sketches and reference they gathered for their designs. Since that's kind of what I do for a living I got to come along. It was a blast.
These are the paintings I did while I was down there.


  1. I've seen these in person, I have titanium white on my jeans to prove it! Muaahaaaaaaaa.

    You already know I love these and that I can't wait to go out painting.


  2. I am Jealous. I should have had you take some photos of this kind of stuff for texture ref.

  3. These turned out awesome Dave! It was fun getting to know you on the trip and finally meeting you.

    Remember, Large $26.99 entrees at the Spotted Dog equal hunger pains all night.

    Unless of course you spend another $6.99 on dessert :)

  4. While I could just turn around in my chair and tell you how awesome these paintings are, it's much more fun to leave a message on your blog!

    These paintings are awesome! I'm jealous that you got to go on such a cool trip.

    Your drawings in the previous post are awesome too!

  5. lovely stuffs!

  6. ooooh... rocks! Can I have it? Oh wait... I still owe you a drawing. Hmm... its been awhile since we "traded", you're not charging interest, are you?

  7. This is great stuff. I really wish I would have been able to go too.

  8. Beautiful and inspiring!
