Amy's art in progress.
See regular updates of my progress on each new painting.


Next I am painting the Haleakala Volcano crater in Maui.  It is going to be a 6 feet long painting so it may take a while. :) 


I started painting today!  I roughly outlined the rocks in the foreground and I started filling in some colors down in the crater. 


I started painting the darker part on the left today!  This painting is so big it takes a while to get going.


I added more to the left side slope today. 



I began adding some of the mountains in the background today.  



More work on the background.  I also started on the rocks in the foreground on the left side.



More work on the foreground... on the right side this time. Some work on the background as well.



More work on the rocks on the left.



I worked on the rocks in the foreground more today.


I added more dark black to the far left side- increasing its contrast with the rocks in the foreground. 


I added blue to the sky today and started a few clouds as well.


I worked on the upper right side today.



I worked on the mountains in the upper right side today and also on the land in the middle background.  



More work on the green hills and also on the middle background.  There are lots of different shapes and colors in there!


More work on the green mountains in the background.  I also added a dark blue/green color in the middle area of the background.  (I finally at least have paint on the entire canvas...except for some of the sides!) 


More work on the green mountains in the back and on the middle background area.  There is a lot going on in the middle... lots of different colors and shapes.


Today I worked on the lighter area in the middle.  I am trying to tie it in with the foreground and keep the illusion of distance.  I want it all to make sense together...


Today I started working on the brown slope on the middle right.  I added more details and more contrast.



I added more details to the brown slope today as well.  I mainly worked on the right side.  



I worked on the top right side of the right slope- adding more details to the dark ashy area.


I started working on the rocks in the foreground again. (Front left)


More work on the left side rocks...


More work on the left side rocks... I also took away some of the rocks in the middle and added a few to the right.


I started working on the front right side- adding some rocks and dark browns. 


Still working on the front right side- I added more rocks.


I added lots more rocks  on the front right side and texture going toward the middle.


I added some more rocks and texture in the middle foreground today.



I started working on the clouds more.  I think I will be finished tomorrow!
