Eaton Canyon





here's today's painting. a lot of you have asked for a step by step breakdown of the process so i saved those out as i worked. i also included a shot of my set up. 2 camping stools, one for me and one for the computer. i begin with a simple breakdown of value and color. i try and keep the compostion down to the fewest values possible that will still evoke the general mood in front of me. then i elaborate on the differnent hues and add a little form to the objects in the scene. finally i refine the shapes and values till i can't see anything more that needs "fixing".
