Barron Canyon 1 - A Work in Progress

Today before I could get started on a painting I had a few things to do in the morning in Peterborough.

After completing my errands I arrived back home and started work on this piece that I had started last year (see post on 07 May 2014).

Beginning on the left side of the painting I added some trees to the top of the cliff's edge.

Working my way down the face of the wall I added some details to the rocks and at the base I put in darker colour to the shoreline and some trees against the shore. Then using the colour mixtures for the trees I painted in the reflections on the water.

I started adding some of the trees on the edge of the rock face on the right side of the canyon until Ron returned home and needed my help in the barn.

I will post this painting again once I have completed the right side of the canyon.
