New Painting - Bryce Canyon National Park

Hoodoos at Bryce Canyon 24x18 oil

I tried this new, challenging technique today.  I've been wanting to try this for years and I'm glad I finally did it.  But it was very challenging.  Next time I need to spend more time drawing before I start to paint.  And, as usual, I need to work out my value plan first and then stick with it.  All in all, I'm satisfied with this first attempt.  Pure colors, thick paint, no greys, and a bold statement.

Hi Jana:

The work is packed with color and vitality. You achieved great contrasts with the shapes even without using grays.
