Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.428
This week I will starting an entirely new painting, once again, of the Grand Canyon. The photo that I will be using is seen directly below. I will be using my usual acrylics on a large (for me) 12x12 gallery-wrapped canvas.
I took this shot on our hike down into the Grand Canyon this past summer. I took a number of shots of this particular view but this was the best of them. Seeing this scene again brings back that memory of those long 2 months ago. :-)
I began with a grid and then placed the various elements. I've attempted to place the major shadows to make things easier later on. Then I added a little paint. The sky has received its initial layer of paint as well as part of the outline below.
The current state of the painting is seen directly below.
I'll have more progress to show you next week. See you then.
Earlier paintings in this series can be seen here.
