anatomy of a painting

Today was an amazing day to paint outside.  I started with a gallery wrapped 36″ x 36″ canvas, cadmium red, cobalt teal, ultramarine blue, permanent green light, hansa yellow medium and titanium white acrylic.  I painted and took breaks under my giant elm tree.

What resulted was painting full of vibrant color, detail and motion.  Each picture below, in order, represents the layers of the painting as I created them.
