Return to Current Blog

Good afternoon and hope your day is going well. I just finished this painting today and wanted to get it to my blog. Vermillion Cliffs is a 24x30 Oil on a gallery canvas. The excitment on this painting has to be the sky. I love to photo or paint cumulus cloud formations. When I photoed the vermillion cliffs for reference it was a fall day clear and early in the morning. I totally reversed that in this painting. I wanted a late day with shadows, cumulus clouds and a palette that represented nearly dusk. WIth this in mind I painted it. The painting has been a struggle to combine all of these factors but I am happy now the way it turned out. I wil decide what to do with the painting and it still needs a varnish but the paint will need to cure for a bit. 
That all for this blog. See ya!
