March has been a busy month, but have no fear, I found my West Texas muse during Spring Break and will be painting again soon.  I am going to paint the Guadalupe Mountains and the Golden Eagle that I got a photo of during my trip.  They are as big as Bald Eagles and I saw one and got a photo of it. It will probably make next years calendar!  Anyway, above is my quick sketch of my new painting's layout... I have to go figure out how big it is going to be now... stay tuned!

I'm super excited to start painting again!  March was a bit too busy to get much going... I am starting by figuring out where the road and mountains are going to go.

I also started filling in the shapes of the mountains today.

I started to fill in the shadows of the mountains today! I am happy about how it is turning out so far!

I started adding some shrubbery in the foreground...

More grass and shrubs.

I started adding the road in the bottom right corner.

More work on the road and a little shading on the mountains... too tired to do too much today...

I added some see-thru orange to the shrubbery.

I added the tree on the left.

Starting to change the colors of the shrubbery on the left side.

I worked a lot on the shrubbery in the foreground.  I am happy because they are starting to look dimensional.  

More shrubbery...

I added some lighter colored grass on the right side today.

I worked on adding more colors and details to the mountains on the left side.


More details on the mountains today.  A bit too much pink but I will fix them soon...

More work on the mountains today.

Changed the shadows on the mountains.


I worked on the road and the grass in the foreground today. I changed the road to a bluish grey color.


I added the golden eagle today!


I changed the eagle a bit today... adding some light to the right side of him.


I added a white line to the road and some wires to the fence.


I added grey to the wire and I think I am finished! :)
