Now for the grass in the foreground. My color recipes are #1. Three combinations of Pthalo Blue + Lemon Yellow + a little Cadmium Yellow Medium. The lightest shade, on the left, has some White mixed in. #2. Two mixes of Pthalo Blue + White. If you’d like to see any of these pictures larger, just click on the image.

Sunlight splashes across the grass to illuminate the “Picnic Table” on the rock.

Red fringe, edging the Tartan blanket, is painted over the grass with Cadmium Red Light.

The outcropping of rocks on the left side of the foreground is now completed.

More California Poppies nestle at the base of the Salvia. After blocking in the blossoms with Cadmium Orange + Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium Orange + Cadmium Red Light, Cadmium Orange and Cadmium Orange + Cadmium Yellow Medium, the leaves are added. The grey-green foliage is made of several shades of Pthalo Blue + Cadmium Orange + White.

Deep centers are indicated with a brush dipped in a thin oil mix of Alizarin Crimson + Liquin Original.

Bright pink Ice Plant snuggles up to the rocks, the bright flowers are Permanent Rose + White.

Yellow centers dance happily in the middle of the cheerful pink blossoms!

“AMAZING GRACE” 48 inches by 75 inches

We’re DONE! It won’t be long until sunset, the sailors are headed to shore. I imagine the Scottish Bagpiper is preparing to come out to the resort patio on the bluff. The hills will soon be alive with his magical rendition of “Amazing Grace”. The picnic is all ready for Scott and Alisa to come sit and enjoy listening to the promise of Our Lord’s Mercy and Grace as they watch His beautiful sunset. Thank you for following along on this painting journey. God Bless You!
