Learn to paint in Acrylic paints - Step by Step
8 x 10 on masonite. I have painted this twice and still can't get it right. I like the outcropping but can't seem to push the mountains back. Third time is a charm?????

Hi Susan, Wow this really pops!! I've looked at your other two paintings and they really pop too!!! Such good work!! It's all about light and shadow in canyon land and you've achieved both. Just as an experiment (with a wet rag close by) try mixing up some very watery, thin sky color and play around with putting it on the furthest range of canyon, then mix a little more sky color into the mixture and painting it on the second furthest range....etc. Just very thin paint. Maybe you can get some more depth that way....just a suggestion :)
Beautiful colours Susan. I like the bold brush strokes.
Thank-you everyone. I appreciate your comments and suggestions. I don't think I'll do it a 3rd time, but I intend on doing a study to teach myself distance using aren't techniques. I've done it well before, but then go "rogue" and think I don't need to follow rules! The story of my life...:)
you use great colors in these paintings. this one seems more abstract to me somehow. i hope if you do it a (3rd) time you share that one also :) the outcrop and the valley are really nice
Hi Susan! I also love your beautiful bold brush strokes! ( I think these are the kind of studies I need to work on to loosen up a bit). As for pushing back the mountains I believe that Mary has your answer. Notice how you pushed them back in your previous post ( also a beauty!) I always have to keep reminding myself that darks get lighter and bluer in the distance and darker in the foreground.
I really like your brush style and boldness on these last two. I see what you are saying though Susan - I'm having a hard time "reading" this. Have you already done the black/white photo comparison to your original picture that Karen does? - that might have your answer.
Hi Susan. I think you have captured this section of the grand canyon well. I like your colors and brushwork - they look bold. The outcropping is bright and comes forward. The distant mountains must be difficult to paint as there are so many different colors in the grand canyon.
