I was out of town all weekend and don't have any completed paintings quite ready to post, but I thought I'd let you know what I'm working on. The pictures below show the first two stages of my latest "large" landscape (24" x 20"), which I started Friday afternoon. It will be the last in a series of three painted from photos of my visit to Colorado last September.
The top picture shows the application of the main color, following the establishment of the main values using a dark neutral, shown in the bottom photo. I hope to post the finished piece tomorrow, after I develop the dogs in the foreground, soften some edges and add final detail. I'll also be posting a plein air painting from our PAA paint-out along the San Marcos River Saturday morning. It's close to complete, but the paint's thin in a couple areas and needs some final touches. Hope you had a great weekend.
