Mostly from Last Summer

I have the hardest time painting without an actual landscape, model, or still life in front of me. At this point I think I should be able to look at what I am doing and make the kinds of changes to what I see that would strengthen my paintings.

Today I thought that perhaps if I take some of my many unfinished paintings and force myself to complete some without looking at any photo references that I might have taken, that this might help me along the way. I started with a piece I began along a road near Canyonlands in Utah. I simplified the sky by removing the clouds and broke up the large purple area on the right.
