Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.531

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of El Morro National Monument. I am using the photo seen directly below. (A borrowed photo.) I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on and 8x8 inch 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.

For this week's installment I've gone over every element of the painting. The highlighted areas of the butte are now a bit darker. The shadowed portion is a more consistent blue with only hints of the dark crevices. Out front there are big changes. The junipers now exist as separate units, each with a long shadow. Note that the shadows follow the slope of the ground. Each has lit areas to the left in green and blue shadow to the right. I'll have this done for next week.

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

I'll have more to show you next week. See you then.

Earlier paintings in this series can be seen here.
