Stage 6 East Fork Wolf Painting


I’ve begun work on the middle ground, defining color and shape of the hills and establishing highlights and dark values in the gravel bars. The distant river gravel is in the shade, this is a painting about fleeting light and shadow. Some areas are highlighted as the sun shines through openings in the clouds, others are in shadow. This dappled light creates an interesting composition. The foreground rocks are picking up many hues and shades of color giving the illusion of detail. It is time to focus on the distant mountains in my next painting session.
