The Valley of Enemy Creek (WIP05) Study Final

I’ve finished my study, although I may do a few little tweeks here and there. I have learned many lessons and how to approach the larger painting to come next. It’s bound to be different in some respects, but I look for the next to be beyond the first. I will use the biggest brushes I have, occasionally even some 2 to 4″ and lots of paint! I’m looking forward to it! I can paint the undercoat now, because it came Fed Ex today. 🙂
This commissioned painting reminds me of the benefits of doing work for others. It’s pulled me out of my everyday choices for compositions and challenged me with something new, and I think I have gained inspiration from it, thank you!

Finished the creek on this study for a bigger painting. There are many small trees that will be painted after it’s dry.
This study 10″x16″, Upcoming commissioned painting 30″x48″.

When I get to the big painting I will probably take the week off my other projects and work solely on the big canvas, and get most of it done. I don’t want to break up my time as much as I have with this study. I’m busier than usual. This is why I have less blog entries too.

I got a little more done today. This rugged terrain, spotted with cedar trees is very interesting to paint. The distant land in background is behind the veil of humidity for depth. I hope I will have time to work on it again tomorrow.
