This week, I'm working on little Grand Canyon paintings. I'm creating a series for the Grand Canyon Association, which will have them for sale at the Kolb Studio in February. I did this a couple of years ago, and the paintings were very successful. When I get them all done, I'll post them here. In the meantime, you'll have to enjoy this photo of the five I've done to date:
Some of you are asking how does one take the magnificence of the Grand Canyon and squeeze it all into a 6x8 panel? It's not easy! The trick is to take a small piece of the Canyon and just suggest the magnificence in the background.
For these, I'm using Gamblin's FastMatte colors. These dry quickly, even though I'm painting a little thicker with a knife, which will make sure I can get them varnished in time for delivery.
By the way, I still have room in my Paint Sedona workshops. Visit www.PaintSedona.com for details. So far, it's been a pleasantly warm winter!
