Ah, well, I was tempted to turn my painting into a wildlife scene. Take a look over at "Just Showing" when you get a chance. Want to know what you think.

Good afternoon. Well fiddle, fiddle and faddle. I can't get past the six hour barrier. Worked three hours. Started at eight. Had breakfast around eleven. Took a short nap. Worked another three hours and my mind just stopped. When I saw some muddling going on in the painting and drew a mental blank, I knew it was the end of this day. Oh well, when the painting does not want to play anymore, the game is over for the day. We shall see what tomorrow brings. The color changes you see in the almost foreground is to introduce the up and close personal views of something a person can almost see definition of familiar forms. I will be adding tree shapes, suggestions and forms when this area dry. There are four progress posts today. Comments and critiques are always welcome.

Good morning. Working within my mind to mud time frame limitations I succeeded in advancing the progress on this painting with five posts. I took five pictures of the progress to record each, what I considered different thought steps, developmental process for what I think are the sequential steps to do this section of the painting. When I lay in the background and I want a more fluid color exchange I will paint over the wet paint with pallet knife strokes. It takes very light touches and strokes holding the knife as a surgeon would hold a scalpel. Took a couple of years to learn that. When I want bolder, truer colors and shapes I wait for the paint to dry before laying the next color of paint on the surface. At times I will drag the knife allowing the paint to catch in the nooks and crannies of the paint beneath. It adds shadows and textures. Whites, yellow ochre, sienna, and just about any red take more time to dry . So, while this is now in that drying stage and I want it dry before I take the next step I will be working on the drawing for Grand Canyon VI. Oh well, it will give me more time to think through the detailed stuff I want to put into that big open white space. Enjoy. And, critiques are always welcome.

Good morning. I have some time to do this post before the day's life business impedes. Well, it took only 4 days for it to dry enough to go back to work on it, so, I did. There are four posts today. I did cliff enhancements, land mass fill ins and tree impression forms. The cliff ridges through out the painting are done with very small portrait brushes in the 00 to 02 class by painting directly under the horizontal ridges to give that light popping edge. Colors used for this were raw umber and burnt sienna. The fourth post is what I call a peek-a-boo look. Sometimes it is just for fun and sometimes it helps me conceptualize the color field strengths, intensities and volumes.
