    Palo Duro Canyon

    About 45 minutes south of Amarillo, TX, is Palo Duro Canyon. At about 120 miles long, itīs second only to the Grand Canyon in size in the US. (I think. )

    This is one of the views.

    As always, Iīve got a long way to go. All AR: oils, no blend. The sky will be different. I just blocked in some color as a contrast while working.

    Sh*t, Scott. That's powerful. You are really hitting it hard with contrast and rich colors. Will make for a dynamic painting.

    It's going to be interesting to see how you can maintain your relative distance between foreground and background. My immediate expectation is that you are going to have your foreground in shadow as a way to group it and let your background sing. One of the challenges of painting in slivers.

    Stunning start!

    Thanks D Akey for the positive feedback!

    Iīve already been trying to figure out what to do with the background/foreground relationship you mentioned. So far, I havenīt got it sorted out--thus, the sliver. This may turn out to be a panoramic view. (Thatīs one way to control the foreground.)

    Or maybe Iīll just go dark with it and slap a poem on it.
