Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.627

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be starting a new painting. My family and I were recently out west for a week in Arizona and Utah. As is our usual custom, we visited a number of galleries in Sedona, Az to peruse some local artwork. After seeing so many Grand Canyon pieces I was inspired to try my own. I'm not working from a photo this time, just from the images left in my mind's eye from both our visit to the north rim and the gallery images. Point Imperial at the canyon was truly inspirational.

I started by separating the canvas into three parts, the elevated foreground, the canyon overlook beyond and the sky. I continued by adding some thin color to the various elements. It doesn't look like much right now but things will be much clearer next week. I promise.

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.
