"Sierra Study" ©

As a possible larger painting I tested out this view in a 5" X 7" study. It has potential so I started in on a 18" X 24" of the same view. Here are the thoughts that I hope will be running around in my head. #1 watch the harmony between the most distant mountain and the sky, in this study there is a slight battle. #2 pick out a few of the close rocks to create a focal point. #3 make the sunlit patches in the mid ground interesting and more of a diagonal rather then the V. #4 make sure that the light source is obvious. And of course other things will pop up as usual.
We had to get ready to evacuate today because of a broken gas main, so my painting time was interrupted but I'll continue on this larger canvas for the next couple of days and then post the resolved painting.
