Jumping Off Cliffs #Watercolor #Arches #KDAllegri

In my watercolor class, we are working toward painting one of Oregon's most famous tourist spots, Crown Point.  From the Vista House, seated on Crown Point, you have a magnificent view of the Columbia Gorge--miles and miles of rolling river, and scenic Oregon and Washington.
