I painted this the other day down at Rock Creek in Red Lodge, MT. I think it may have been one of the most difficult scenes I have ever chosen. One of the hardest things about painting outdoors is having a time limit on making sense of the infinite information that we see in front of us.
With just 2 or 3 hours to paint, the struggle with this painting was getting the rocks to look like rocks without taking hours and hours to render each Rock.
I’m not sure I succeeded but I did give it my best shot!
This next week I will be taking a workshop from Joshua Clare in Bozeman, MT. It is always fun to learn from different artists and to experiment with different ways of making a painting. Check back soon for some very different stuff from me!
