"Above Big Sur"
A step by step from study to studio painting
In this step you can see the canvas has been completely
covered with paint, approximately one hour into painting.
It is only at this point, when I can see everything as a
whole, that I can start to compare and adjust all
my values and color to my liking. You can see I've
kept all my shapes strong and haven't done too much
detail work yet. It is very important not to lose
yourself in detail, remember what you are trying to
convey and put down only the necessary brush marks.
