New On My Easel

I got this roughly sketched and blocked in today.  This is another subject for my Yosemite series.  It is the largest canvas of the series so far-- 24 x 30 inches.  This is a popular site to view Yosemite Valley from. It is referred to as Tunnel View.  If you've been to the national park, you will probably recognize El Capitan on the left, Yosemite Falls (right mid-ground about left of where the red shadow is, and Half Dome in the far distant right.  

I'll keep you posted on progress of this one, as well as the painting from the previous post.   I'm really enjoying working on this group of paintings.

 Phase One, sketch and begin block in

Phase Two, quick block-in
