The next painting I will be posting will be a portrait of my 19 year old son Timothy. I am working on this painting in between as I wait for dying of the Ayres Rock Painting.

Moving forward on Ayres Rock
Contrary to my last post I have not worked much of the foreground. Instead I wanted to work the sky more, lift out the rainbow and finish Ayres rock. I did manage to lift the rainbow however it is too yellow and will need reworking. The sky has improved however I need to remove some of the yellow in the lower area and work the horizon so it ties the foreground in better and i need to darken it. It is difficult to tie in the top part of the painting as the colours are so different to the lower half and although the scene was like that, a painting need to be more harmonious so I have a challenge in representing the experience as real as possible but in keeping with a good painting.
