Hey Gang, here is a studio painting 9x12 done in about 7 hours (with several breaks). I've posted the original photo and a shot with one of the 3 plien air references I used. As always, your C&C is most welcomed and appreciated.

Stupendous work Richard. Now I see why you need the frame of mine you're bidding on! Tremendous, really. Great job. How great to have someone like you to admire.

Hey Hey Sean, small world! :wave: Yep that frame of yours looks like it might work nicely and if not on this one, I'll keep painting till I get one that does. Thanks so much for the compliment. :)

Wow...I'm glad I stopped by...your painting is waaaayyyy better than the original picture itself. Your colors are more exciting. Great work.

I see in your other thread your plein airs seem to be quite complete already(and very good), and what would be your motive to make a large studio painting? And do you find it's easy to relie on the photo too much in studio even when you have a plein air as your reference?

Another gorgeous one!! The study and the studio piece are both wonderful :)
:clap: :clap: :clap:
We're really going to have to work on getting you into some galleries ;) These paintings NEED to be hanging in someone's home. Preferably mine :evil:

Hey Nancy! :) Many thanks. I did get a bit of good news last night. I got a call that I was juried in to the Estes Park Plein Air 2005 Show. I'm pretty excited about it. Got home around 10pm after an 8 hour drive from Corpus Christi and was pretty beat but after I heard the phone message.....couldn't go to sleep till about 1:00 am.
Did you get to take your trip to NM? If so, I hope it well for you.
Take Care :wave:

Congrats on getting in to the Paint Out in Estes!!! :clap:
That's a great show with some wonderful artists - you'll have a blast :)
The NM trip was REALLY quick...essentially one day, and only 1/2 day of galleries :( We're going to have to go back soon to really check it out. There are some great galleries on Canyon Road...more later via PM :)

You did a great job with those shadows in the mountains. You capture the time of day with great light and your composition is really beautiful too. Great job.
