Saturday Painting Palooza Vol. 53

Welcome back!

This week we'll be concluding the painting of Wild Horse Butte, a scene from southern Utah.  It is seen in the photo directly below.

When last we met, the painting appeared as it does directly below.

Since that time, I've made a number of changes, most of them small.  The biggest change is the sky. I've actually repainted all of it. Unfortunately, once I started repainting small portions, it became clear that a cohesive sky required more extensive work. It's much more full now with vague clouds throughout and one more defined one on the lower right. It provides a bit of an accent.

I've also made minor revisions to the right side of the butte. (Blue paint inadvertently got on it.) And of course I've made the color(s) of the background, seen on the extreme right side, more consistent with the foreground. It was previously just a bit too bright. I've added my signature on the left foreground. Now I've got to get a frame. The final painting is seen in the last of the series directly below.

I'm pleased with the result.

I have a preview, once again, of our next painting below.

It is a circa 1950 Hudson Hornet.  See you next week.
