Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be starting a new painting.  It is a scene that I photographed in El Morro National Monument a couple of years ago.  The photo that I’m using is seen directly below.  I’ll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 6×6 inch canvas.

I started with a pencil grid on both a print of the photo and the canvas.  In this way I was able to transfer the elements with some accuracy.  All of this has been done in blue.  Next week will see some other colors.

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

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