Sunlit Hills before breakfast – Process

Uncategorized

I really wanted to capture the startling effect of the morning sun as it hit the hills of the canyon we were camped in, in central Australia. I drew it a couple of times. This is the first preliminary sketch in oil pastel.

I played with the shapes a second time, again in oil pastels, which captured a few more ideas

I kept the 30 x 30cm format and there were of course a few more changes along the way, but I was very happy with the result in acrylic on board.
