The Story Of The Sierrascape Print by Mick Ryan

I spent nine happy years living in the Sierra Nevada and like all who have enjoyed its natural beauty it will never leave me.

After I left I found myself sketching the distinctive Sierra skyline. I was imagining myself as a Prairie Falcon high above the White Mountains looking across the Owens Valley to the Sierra Nevada. I drew from memory then looked at some photographs and maps and refined the sketch.

I scanned the sketch and traced it in a drawing package producing vector lines. This I printed out on watercolor paper and painted using watercolor paints.

I then added the climbing areas that I know so well and the classic mountain routes of the Sierra.

This work titled,  Climbing On The Eastern Sierra Nevada and in the Owens Valley  is available as a giclée print and as a set of greetings cards.
