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.


Since that time I have continued to work on the painting.

I struggled with the large butte and went through 6 or so revisions. I settled on this final version somewhat satisfied. The brushstrokes mirror those seen on the mid distance buttes. Finally, the far rear has been revised with just the suggestion of additional rocky geography.

The current and final state of the painting is seen in the photo directly below.


I’ll have a new painting to show you next week. See you then.
