Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting the Grand Canyon. The photo that I’m using (mine) is seen directly
above. I’ll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 6×6 inch 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.

I’ve now added preliminary paint to those white spaces. The sky appears in blue, buttes in brown and just a hint of
green. I like to lay out things this way to see if the if things look right. Naturally I’ll adjust things as I go
along. Sometimes those adjustments are vast changes. Hopefully that isn’t the case here.

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.
