    I’ve painted and posted first version of this scene not too long ago. And I thought first one turned out better. I typically paint on 1/8 of a sheet of paper. I’m pretty familiar with size and how much paint I need to mix. Sho going to  1/2  sheet is a bit of a challenge.  Still. Here it is. Thanks for watching. So this is from a newspaper and image was poor quality and low saturation. That’s actually pretty good. I tried to recreate basic shape of the mesa. And my trees suck! I know.

    Nice shadows and the trees look good to me.  Deserts are beautiful subjects.  Paint more.

    I think this is excellent! I really like the shadows and the green areas and that bit of purple at the back. Your mesa is very good, too. 🙂

    Nice one, Alex and congratulations on having the courage to go large.   I bet this looks simply magnificent at full size.

    Awesome Alex! Did you use larger brushes when you chose to paint on a larger paper?

      Hi Annette! It’s good to see you back. I did use larger brushes. I have few hake brushes I used for larger washes. Turned out they are pretty nice. I also have amerian journey interlocked nylon 1-1/2 wide and that one is pretty useless. Holds nice edge but no water in it.
