Hannah and I are taking a week off for research (i.e. finding appropriate photographs for models, investigating paintings of the American West landscape, buying paint and gesso in Columbus, and reading Modelling Terrain, etc.). In the meantime, here are our drawings of how all these earthworks are going to fit into what now feels like a cramped space.
Night will fall into sunset from east to west and storm clouds will approach Amarillo Ramp and Lightning Field in the east. Spiral Jetty will extend into the backdrop with some of Salt Lake painted into the horizon. In addition, Sun Tunnels will be aligned with the sunset.
How does it compare?? Still too early to tell...
