8x10 oil on canvas panel
After getting settled in our new camp and taking a few weeks off exploring the high elevations of Great Basin National Park...it is time to get back to work! To warm up...a few quick pieces. Here is a 95% finished sky study from a photo I took last summer over the Grand Canyon from Mather Point. I also completed two small oils of Wheeler Peak ...the highest mountain close to our camp...will post them later. My current goal is to be much faster painting these small oils...more impressionistic with the objective of getting an juicy expressive stroke with just the right color and value in one go....whew! This kind of work demands concentration and letting go at the same time,..like a dance...a tango.
