Sand Dunes Process

The process for creating this painting was so interesting, I thought I should share.
The sky was a very subtle grey and the green in this tree line was to be the darkest part.
This image is the most striking to me as these colors are so subtle in the final image. The blue shadows left me a little uncertain as I laid them down, but I think you'll see in the final image how important each decision was here.

A few more small details getting dialed in and more layering in of the tree line.

Tiny details can make a huge difference. It may be hard to see here but I added individual blades of grass on the bottom dune. This original painting measures 12" x 12" and is currently available for $350. Thanks for reading.
