Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be starting a new painting of the Grand Canyon.  I am using the photo seen directly below.  This is a portion of one that I took there this past summer.  I’ll be using my usual acrylic paints on and 10×10 inch canvas.

I’ve tried this before with not very good results.  Hopefully this one will turn out better.  Anyway, I started with a grid drawn on both a copy of the original photo and the canvas.  In this way, I was able to roughly transfer the location of elements to the canvas with some accuracy.  I then sketched in the scene using the grid lines as location points.  I added some paint in the shadows and to the sky.  It’s a start.

The current and final state of the painting is seen in the photo directly below.


I’ll have more to show you next week. See you then.
