"Autumn Reflections"

This is a made up scene and almost painted itself.

Oil on panel, 16"x20"
This is the repainted version from a few months ago. The smaller study in the previous post helped me to get the light and shadow colors the way I wanted them. The the scene was in total cloud shadow in the photo I used and the intial painting was flat and had too much foreground detail. I painted out the foreground and made it secondary to the mountains.

"Chisos" study

Oil on panel, 5"x7"
This is a prelim for a redo of a painting I completed some months ago but was totally unhappy with. Thought I would workout the light and shadow on the mountains in a small version before I repainted the larger version.

Occassionally a painting rolls off your fingers as if it's meant to be. This was one of those. The view is of Juniper Canyon from the Lost Mine Trail in Big Bend National Park.
