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 have continued to refine the various buttes, now seen with striations and highlights. Note that the photo has brightened things a bit. The buttes loosely mirror what is seen in the photo but with the colors configured for a bit more contrast.

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.
