Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.217

Hello again painting fans.

This week we'll be continuing with the painting of the Sedona butte.

The photo that I will be using is seen directly below.

I'll be using my usual acrylics on 8x10 canvases.

Since last time I've continued to work on the painting.

I've started to paint the foreground with the reddish brown seen everywhere in Sedona. I've also carried the same color back to the details of butte itself.

The butte has also been painted with blue as seen in the shadowing of the photo. I am considering muting these colors a bit to suggest the great distance from the foreground. With these few additions the painting begins to take on some of the depth of the photo.

The current state of the painting is seen directly below.

That's about it for now. Next week I'll have more progress to show you. See you then. As always, feel free to add photos of your own work in the comments section below.

Earlier paintings in this series can be seen here.
