Large river painting I'm working on

Posted Jun 19, 2023

Here's a shot of a large river painting I've currently got on my easel.  Making good progress on it I think.  Pretty much only painting a few hours a week, so I do move fast on it when I get the chance. 

The idea for this one came as I was running along the trail by the river, and noticed this spot with some really deep areas and such clear water.  I could tell there were large rocks, but also just a lot of depth that I thought looked really interesting. I wanted to go large with it, to really pull the viewer into the water and the mystery of what might in there.

Progress shots - "No More Strangers"

Here's a progress shot of a painting I'm currently working on. Really loving this so far. It's the most ambitious painting I've done, involving 10 portraits! I'm planning to enter this into our church International art competition. The theme is "All are alike unto God". This subject is close to my heart, and this scene is what came to mind when I first learned about the theme.
