Watercolor in Utah: Mt. Pleasant

Art Prof Clara Lieu visits Mt. Pleasant, Widstoe, and Green River on the way to Southern Utah, where she paints on site using Winsor & Newton watercolors and alcohol based brush pens. Prof Lieu paints a “monument” of rocks in the desert, a fence with a patch of trees and a propane tank & watermelon stand at a truck stop in an effort to tackle her artistic weaknesses: color, landscape, and watercolor.
