PLACES NOBODY MIGHT HAVE EVER STOOD AND PAINTED BEFORE
I can’t say for sure, but too my knowledge it seems plausible that these were the first paintings ever created by any artist from these specific vantage points due to their overall obscurity, or difficulty of access.
Ok, let’s clarify, I’m talking about oil or acrylic paintings on canvas 12″ x 12″ or larger. I know you quick sketch/small watercolor folks really get around. If you have painted from one of these vistas, let me know! I’d be stoked to see what you came away with and remove my claim here. It’s all in good fun. Not trying to start any turf wars here.
