Turquoise Canyon (Acrylic Watermedia as of Apr. 13, 2018)

This is the painting I am working on, a mountain landscape painted from my imagination and my memories of the Colorado mountains.  This is acrylic used with water on Aquabord, 16 x 20 inches. Today I used some transparent layers of very pale blue over the pink and blue areas of the sky. Now the distinction is still visible, but more subtle, and I am happy with that.  I added more  blue-green washes to the bottom of the painting, and also added some purple to create shadows, and to create a color tie-in between the sky and  the mountains.  And I brightened the sun a bit.  Just a few more things to fix, almost there. To be continued. . .
