Phase 3 “Teklanika Bears” Painting

This is a fairly large painting and it was important to walk a distance away from time to time to observe the progress.  At this point all the spaces are blocked in, but very little detail is painted.  I thought the row of bushes behind the bears was too bright, the gravel too blue, and the bears too light, so my next steps are to darken and subdue the lower half of the scene.  I want to mountains to dominate.  More tomorrow.
