Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be starting a new painting of the Grand Canyon. 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 my now usual pencil grid, upon which I began my sketch.  Note that I draw the same grid over the photo for purposes of an accurate pencil sketch on the canvas.  The result is a reasonably accurate outline sketch of the scene.

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.
