This painting took me almost three weeks to paint. It's my jeep at the bluffs by our creek. I did it in Acrylics and the jeep itself was easy and I liked the way it turned out. The foreground was fun to do too. BUT the Bluffs were a nightmare for me. I had trouble getting them to go back into the background. I finally used a lot of glazing using a cool red over the greens and dark blue, red and purples to finish it up the bluff. The photos are some of the steps of this painting but not all. There were times when I wanted to throw it out the door and stomp on it, stomp, stomp, stomp, and then burn it. I wasn’t thinking, oh let's take a photo!
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
