Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the 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.

When last seen the painting appeared as it does in the photo seen directly below.

I’ve added more color, darkening things a bit to see if the image will have the illusion of great distance. Note the brown lit buttes and dark shadows below. I’ve left the far distance lighter for an attempt at aerial perspective.

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.
