Owyhee Canyon Rim


The Owyhee River runs through a remote area of Nevada, Idaho and eastern Oregon, cutting a deep canyon through Great Basin landscape.  This watercolor was painted on a rafting trip on the Owyhee, looking up at the panorama of colorful cliffs from one evening’s camp.

Owyhee_KimPaint600Painting in the wilderness is always an adventure.  Sometimes it rains and snows on a painting in progress. Other times the sun is so hot that the paints dry on the palette.  This photo shows the sun-shade I constructed from raft paddles and a tarp on the Owyhee.
