This is 12 x 18 on heavy linen paper - Chroma Professional acrylics - alla prima - using a 2 1/2 inch angled brush from Home Depot. Color and I are no strangers - I believe that color rules and not being a detailed painter I firmly believe that Less is More and the more less the better :>)
I start out by putting down some "directional lines" using a juicy mix of paint - this is how I "sketch" most of my paintings which allows me to paint loosely with out constraints in form and shape. If needed I adjust the lines as I proceed.
I start "throwing" in the visual components of the scene from the sky forward
The finished painting
Hope you enjoyed this and if you have any questions I can be contacted at
