Granite and Cedar #4

Monday, July 14th, 2008

In this entry I’m working further definition, texture, highlights, and developing sunlit areas, it’s beginning to pop a bit. A little hard to tell in the photo but there is a nice backlit luminosity of the underpainting coming through, giving the granite a glow. I’m happy with it so for. Usually at some point I start disliking it. But so far so good!

In This entry I am beginning to apply impasto layers in building the blueish lichen over the red granite. Also developing some deeper shadows and deliniation of the rock, cracks, etc. Also layering in additional layers of red.
