First color sketch
Since I didn't have the opportunity to do a plein air sketch in Great Bend, I am having to rely on photos and memory. This will be a large painting: 24 x 30 and so I will be working from color sketches. This first one is VERY rough.
I printed out the middle two of the photos in the previous blog. I cropped and pasted them together as shown above. You can see where they join.
The big change here is the elimination of the bridge, which is I-81. I chose a sunset from a photo that I took last summer. See below:
