On the Easel


Here are some process shots of work in progress. Above, a storm in the Angeles Forest underpainting.


The storm painting with descriptive color layers. It's coming together fairly quickly. Another refining layer or two might finish it.


The first color layers of clouds over the Chain of Craters Road and a detail of the turbulence below.



Chain of Craters clouds painting further along. These clouds are complex. I suspect it will take some time to untangle all the shapes. 
  

And finally, a small volcano painting in the underpainting stage.

These are marvelous. Love seeing your under painting process.

Recently, I was in Austin and happened to see the bats coming out for the evening in clouds and streams of black against the sky.

Reminded me of your murmurations series of birds.

Thank you Jean.

Wow, what an amazing thing to see. Lucky you!

I think bats are so cool, and they help get rid of mosquitos.
