Who knew that were two Old Faithful Geysers? This one in the Napa Valley is in a beautiful (if a bit commercialized) setting. It is located near Calistoga, California and you can learn more by clicking here. It is not as large or impressive as Yellowstone but is still quite a sight to see and it erupts more frequently. It sits in the middle of a quiet pool and the blow hole is surrounded by rocks. The water is filled with flickering green light from the vegetation. It was very peaceful to sit quietly while completing this sketch. There were very few visitors and the sound of the geyser erupting was gentle and rhythmic. For this sketch I used a combination of colored pencil and watercolor.
