Hello again painting fans.
This week I will be continuing with the painting of the Grand Canyon. The photo that I will be using is seen directly below. I will be using my usual acrylics on a 12×12 gallery-wrapped canvas.
When last seen, the painting appeared as it does in the photo seen directly below.
Since that time, I have continued to work on the painting.
For this week’s installment, I’ve concentrated my efforts on the buttes to the far rear. I’ve now painted the lit areas in a yellow/orange shade. The shadows have been painted in a paler blue better in keeping with the distance. I’ve also repainted the blue of the far distance behind. I will likely tone down the the yellow/orange. It just seems a bit too bright. Hopefully this successfully simulates aerial perspective.
The current state of the painting is seen directly below.
I’ll have more progress to show you next week. See you then.
