Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.528
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.
Starting at the top, I have painted over the sky in a lighter blue. It's closer to the color that will eventually appear in the final version. Moving on to the butte, I have painted the yellowish highlights and adjacent blue shadows. I've been careful to delineate the location of the dark crevices. I've carried the yellow down to the foreground. Finally, I've painted the shadowed portion of what will be foliage in the foreground.
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.
