Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.106

Welcome back.

This week we'll be continuing with our 5x7 painting of Arizona's Grand Canyon. The photo of our subject is seen in the photo directly below. (For those new to this series, I will be using my usual acrylics.)

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

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

Let me start with this. Friends don't let friends paint while packing. Too lazy to dig out the paints I needed while I was occupied packing for a trip, I decided to mix the colors I had on hand. Starting with my blue and yellow, I made green, then added red to produce what I hoped would be a brown. This color was intended to be the very dark brown on the left side of the photo. My less than successful attempt is seen in the photo directly below. With my packing ongoing, I hadn't the time for a do over.

Next week I will have some actual progress to show. See you next week.
