Cape Butte

Painted this summer, the view looking west from the Abyss overlook on the West Rim Drive. The shadows turn very orange in the cool sun of early afternoon.

I painted this view on the trail, near the viewpoint known as ‘The Abyss,’ just west of Mohave Point, located west of Grand Canyon Village along Hermit’s Rest Road. Looking northwest, I painted Cape Butte in the lower left corner against the Colorado River. The midday color warms the shadow and I painted fast in an impressionist manner. Cape Butte is at the end of the ridge where hikers begin their decent on Cathedral Stairs of Hermit Trail.
