BECKY JOY oil landscape painting Arizona canyon

"Arizona Wash" oil 11"x14

 I spent the day in the studio painting and preparing canvases. I needed to record a video for my online workshop working on brushwork. I chose a photo to work from. I was drawn to the bright yellow trees in the wash with the contrast of the dark rocks behind them. I moved things around and changed colors a little. I wanted the light yellow/greens of the trees contrasting against the dark warm violets of the rocks. It was a fun painting to paint with the texture and colors. Rocks are always something that I enjoy painting.

Feb is just a few days away. I have my PDF Febuary 2012 calendar page ready for you to  download on the home page. My website Art Workshops Online has a new article about my value sketches with photo below from my sketchbook.
