The painting below is titled “Grand Canyon of Yellowstone Park" by Thomas Moran.

The painting “Grand Canyon of Yellowstone Park” is a great example of how a master artist like Moran uses colors, shapes, and contrast to attract the viewer and draw them into the scene. The golden browns of the mountains contrast with the bluish colors of the water as it flows from the waterfalls deep in the background of the mountains. The triangular shapes combined with the strategic colors lead the eye directly through the mountains to the waterfalls in the background.
