I decided to do something a bit different and decided that a lightning storm sky would bring an added dimension to the painting. I had to use multiple photos to piece together the painting from Yaki Point. There are trails visible in the lower left corner.
We’ve been to Grand Canyon several times over the years and sometime I’m going to hike all the way to the river and also to Havasu Falls. Both are on the bucket list.
Chief Standing Bear. Another 1880s era photo that I’m using as the basis of a portrait painting. This will take a few weeks. I like challenges.
Hopefully I did it justice. On to the next project….TBD
I found a photo taken in the late 1800s of a girl that I presume was wearing a wedding dress and decided to paint a color portrait of it. I made some changes for the chair and provided a background but otherwise retained much of the detail of the photograph.
