We were after a hidden waterfall this morning, so hidden, that’s right, we didn’t find it. But there was plenty of material in the area. We ended up right on the Arizona Trail…wouldn’t it be fun to paint the trail?! All of it-from Mexico to Utah. Have Burro, will travel…Gay Sheibl took this pic of el jefelito-he just couldn’t make it over the stream boulders, (yes, he is fastened on).
I’ll try a limited primary triad palette with earthy opaque hues; cerulean blue, Persian red and yellow ochre. I ‘m using Williamsburg yellow Ochre (domestic)-really rich. Williamsburgoils.com
Following the form with strokes. Layering from general to specific.
We like these old Oaks. They have good contrast and varied form…and the best shade! Gay paints with Pete at her feet.
Good dogs -good company.
