Hello again painting fans.
This week I will starting the new painting of the Grand Canyon. The photo that I will be using is seen directly below. I will be using my usual acrylics on an 10x10 gallery-wrapped canvas.
I began with a pencil grid upon which I added the major elements. This preliminary pencil sketch is seen directly below.
I then proceeded to paint in some base colors. These will change with time but they provide a starting point. Note that the features in the center already have a wonderful rhythm.
The current state of the painting is seen directly below.
I'll have much more to show you next week. See you then.
