Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.585

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be starting with an entirely new painting. The photo I'm using is seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 6x6 inch canvas.

Once again, I'm attempting to paint the Grand Canyon. My prior efforts have yielded rather poor results but I'm determined to try again. This time I'm using a different strategy. Yes, one needs a painting strategy when attempting such a subject.

I began with a pencil grid upon which I sketched in the shapes of the large elements. I'm not attempting super fine detail here. I'm going for an image that captures the overall look of the photo. For next week some actual acrylic paint.

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

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

Earlier paintings in this series can be seen here.
