Ranchita Arroyo Grande Morning – Underpainting done

Ranchita Arroyo Grande Morning underpainting doneThe underpainting is done and just in time for the weekend.  I will let it dry for the next few days before I begin again.

I made sure I was pleased with the distance mountain range and the far edge of the property on the horizon before I quit for the day.  These areas must be completed before I can start to work on the middle and foreground.  In landscapes, you paint back to front and everything underneath another element first.  This is why the fencing and gate will be the last items I work on.
