This week we’ll be continuing with the new painting that was started last week, the Sedona, Arizona that was inspired by the photo seen directly below.
When last we were together, the painting appeared as it does in the photo directly below.
Since that time, I have continued to work on the painting, especially the foreground.
I’ve painted the parking lot a darker color, providing good contrast to all that red.
I’ve added shadowing in two areas of the painting. Considerable work has been done on the car. It is now 2 shades of red. To the left it is a lighter color in recognition of lighting from the left. Naturally it is a deeper red to the right, the shaded portion of the car. Below is a darker shadow casting toward the right.
The buttes also have shadowing to the right side. Other elements will be consistent in their shadowing. I’ve also begun to paint the shrub on the left side of the painting. The color will change in the coming weeks.
The current state of the painting is seen below.
That’s about it for now. Your comments are always appreciated. See you next week.
