This was painted using brush work mixed with palette knife about 50/50. Very loose and spontaneous work with bold color. I used photos taken on the 90 Alternate between Richmond and Eagle Lake. Lots of nice ranch land on that route.
Pretty sure I've posted this before, maybe not but this is a revised piece I started long ago. It was a problem child of which I have several, meaning that no matter what I do to it I can't seem to get it to my satisfaction. Well, I think this one is finally on my good side and I can call it done. Better late than never right?
If you are interested in this piece, email me for specifics.
Pretty much a made up scene. This is the transitional zone between the hill country and the Chihuahuan Desert. Overlapping species of flora and fauna from both regions ebb and flow on the Western edge of the Balcones Escarpment.
I painted this from a photograph taken at Panther Junction in Big Bend National Park.
The actual photo was rather mundane, taken mid day the light was not very interesting and the entire image was rather gray. I took much liberty with the painting process, working quickly I splashed in some light and shadows and accentuated the desert color.
