Cummins Skyway Canyon
Cummins Skyway Canyon, 30 x 40" acrylic on canvas
Betsy took me to the other side of the road, where the cows usually are (they were not there that Saturday). I saw a rabbit on the fire road where we set up. I wasn't sure if I would be able to return for a few weeks, and painted as fast as I could so I could finish this humongous canvas. I also used loads of medium so I could control the opacity of the color. It was a very hazy day, and the sky I originally made did not have any depth to it, so I changed it. The backlit hills are okay. I am still revising it in my studio, and will post an update when I'm done.
