Saturday Painting Palooza Vol.640

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the Red Canyon painting. The photo that I'm using is seen directly below. I'll be using my usual acrylic paints on a 5x7 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.

I've overpainted much of the canvas for this week's cycle. Note the revised butte, now with both a new color and more crack detail. I am attempting to convey the feel of the various cracks without painting each one. As such I am painting the larger ones with a reduced amount of small ones along the top. I spent some time looking at the photo and arrived at what is seen in the photo below. More would likely be too much. Finally, the trees are now more of a greenish color.

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.
