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 below. 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’m in the process of figuring which colors work best with the various elements. I’m going with a darker brown color for the buttes, some of which is seen in the photo. The more distant rocks will have a lighter version of the same brown. Ochre highlights will be set off nicely.

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.
