hill country life


This is the final painting in the Texas Hill Country trio. They are each 25.25" x 37.25" in acrylic on 300gsm Arches Cover cut to 30" x 40". These are the preliminary sketches and here's a slideshow where you can watch this final painting come to life. It was a fun challenge to create these specifically for a designer's site specifications (size, colour palette, imagery), yet based on earlier work of mine. Freedom with guidelines. Or, as Robert Genn likes to say, "I play better tennis because there's a court."

Interesting to watch it morph, especially the color changes. I like the desert-y color sin the final painting.

I meant finished painting - I know it's all the same one.

Yes, thank you for posting the slide show. I love watching how to do the underpainting. It rather boggles my mind.

I got the slideshow idea from posting the progression on Facebook. It's cool to see each stage melting into the next, isn't it?

I love the butterflies! Especially that big, bold monarch!

Thanks so much for the slideshow, too cool to see how it all starts out! I love the rich colors you achieve & how your paintings lead the viewer all around and back again.
