Howdy friends! I got an interesting suggestion for a painting from a viewer named Jenny Recently and since I had not painted anything like it I decided to give it a try!
She wanted me to paint a stack of rocks, also called a “cairn” which are used to mark trails for hikers and give directions. I learned all about them in Girl Scouts but sadly that was decades ago so I can’t elaborate LOL! I am lucky I never got lost in the woods hiking! Anyhow, I thought it would make a fine watercolor tutorial and I hope you do too!

Rocks are some of my favorite subjects to paint, I love the colors, texture and character they have. I think it’s cool that they have been here for millions of years and how unique and yet how common they are. What do you think? Is it crazy to paint a stack of rocks? Let me know in the comments below and til next time happy crafting!
