Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.134

Welcome back.

This week we will be continuing with our scene from the Sonoran desert area. This is an 8x10 canvas using my usual acrylics.

The subject photo is seen directly below.

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.

I've now completed the foreground with various small plants. Each is lit in a way that is appropriate to and consistent with this sunset scene. Shadows have been added to all the cacti, which have all been completed in green, yellow and blue.

The cloudless sky is now finished in a somewhat darker shade of blue.

Finally, a darker blue appears between the background cacti, suggesting many more cacti in the far distance.

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

Next week I'll start an entirely new project.

That's about it for now. I'll see you next week. As always, feel free to add photos of your own work in the comments section below.
