On the creek there are adjustments to make it more like actual place, but overall I think it’s working.

This week I’ve been focused on the big painting. I will probably still be adding color and lighting adjustments to some of these areas.

When I sketch my paintings, I use watercolor pencil and push my lines around with water and a brush. I usually paint the background yellow, tan, rust, or even red. I use gesso with a little fluid acrylic, in this case Indian Yellow. I never leave it white!
