I worked pretty diligently on this painting Christmas Day till about 3:00 when my wife and I took a trip up to the Sheep Range to check out the Bighorns.[Will be posting that on my Outdoor Adventures]On my last post Susan Roper asked about my background color. I used a mixture of Ultramarine Blue and Neutral tint. At times for something like this I will use Indigo. I have kind of established my lights and darks and though it doesn't show off quite as well in this post I got the shadows and textures on the snow bvank just like I wanted. Hope I won't have to go back in there as I'd hate to mess that up. The next big challenge will be getting the lights and darks on the bear and make all that work. A lot of the darks blocked in will be Sagebrush and Shrubby Cinquifoil though too early in this setting for flowers. Some grassses will help but to keep it scientific I'll have to be careful with that as a lot of grasses at this time of year will be very mated from the winters snow cover.

Hi, Gary. That shadow really pops, and does a nice job defining the shape of the snow bank. Very convincing. Best.

I love watching the evolution of this painting; I am anxious to see the finished product!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours, Gary!

I love seeing the progression. It's so instructional to see how you work. So much detail in already before you get to the main player. Really sets the stage.

Using a gouache technique it is so easy to adjust values and in that way I can also see how detail works against what I am doing since I so love detail and texture.
