Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.247

Hello again painting fans.

This week I'll be continuing with the twilight Huson river painting. I'm using the photo seen directly below.

I will be using my usual acrylics on a small 4 by 5 inch gallery-style (thick) canvas.

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 (mostly) completed those dramatic clouds. They meet the now complete hills of the Hudson highlands. Directly below the larger of the two hills, the reflection has received some additional paint as has the river itself. Finally, the roadway now has an additional paint layer as well as a line separating the shoulder.

The current state of the painting is seen in the photo 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.

Hiya Boran,

I can see it starting to take shape, but seeing the whole picture to the end I still am having trouble. I was just thinking that painting is in a way like playing chess. You want to look forward so many moves from your present one. In the same way, it seems to me, with painting you see so far ahead of what you're actually doing at that time. I guess I just don't have the painter's eye. ;)

Hope you have a good w/e ahead and take care.

Hi FM! You give me far too much credit. I don't always plan things that far in advance. To an extent, the paintings evolve on their own. Sometimes I'm only along for the ride. :-)

Heh, that happens to me with stories, Boran. I like that photo you're working from, looking forward to seeing how you do it… justice. (Had to say that)

Thanks Far! I don't know about justice. I'll settle for a competent likeness. ;-)
