Valley of Enemy Creek (WIP02)


I’ve made progress on the big canvas. 30″x48″ The middle and foreground trees are next.


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.
30″x 48″ canvas.

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!
