Slide Rock Sedona
6" x 8" oil on linen
Work In Progress
Today I worked on this oil painting of a scene at Slide Rock Park in Sedona, Arizona. It still has a ways to go to bring to completion. I positively love everything about Sedona. Well, except maybe that it has built up too much , but there is still plenty of beautiful red rock scenery to gawk at.
Below is another rough beginning on canvas today:
It is a 12" x 12" oil of a Black-Crowned Night Heron . I just felt like doing a wildlife painting as a change of pace from the landscapes I have been doing lately. Thought some of you new visitors might like to see how I put a piece of cardboard on the easel behind each painting; it helps keep paint from flying against the wall behind. Also I use some tac putty and stick my reference photographs on the cardboard to have as a handy reference as I paint. In the upper right hand corner you can see part of the reference photo for the above painting of Slide Rock.
Check back soon to view the completed paintings.
