Work in Progress
The canvas above is based on my photo at Arches National Park taken a few weeks ago. I loved the colors of the cottonwoods and the massive rock formations. I am trying to get a sense of the majesty of the place. This canvas is 16" X 20" and painted with acrylics on stretched wrap canvas. I hope to have more time to work on it during the next few weeks. I only have two more painting classes this fall. I don't expect to take any painting classes during the winter, but I have lots of projects and ideas to keep me busy.
This painting is a small one, 8" X 10" on canvas board. I am still learning to use oils and have a long way to go. I worked on getting some of the dark rock formation backgrounds painted yesterday in my class. This is the famous "Delicate Arch" at Arches National Park. I will put some people in the painting at the end so that viewers can get an idea of scale. It was a long hike up to the arch for my senior legs, but I was glad my daughter pushed me to go. Links to my Utah photos are in an earlier post.
