My husband and I had a wonderful trip to Alaska. I’ve been doing a lot of new paintings based on photos I took there.
Initial block in
A few stages of the painting.
The whole study was done in about an hour. The usual palette was used and the gessobord was coated with a dilute mixture of cadmium vermillion and sevres blue (which was dry before I began the painting). This gives a nice warm undertone that shows through.

Did you drive there? If so you went by close to my place…
Nice quick painting and nice to see you back to blogging!
Hi Annerose! We flew to Fairbanks, then joined a group from the Nature Conservancy. Went to Denali, Kenai Fjords National Park, took the Alaskan railroad a couple times and wound up in Anchorage. I thought about you. What magnificent landscapes the whole time. Mount McKinley is surreal — we got to see it : ) Good to be back blogging!
Thank you so much. Have a great day!
Great painting Anita!
Thanks, Marty! Happy Friday!
Same to you Anita!
Love this new work from Alaska. Glad to have you back. Hope you had a good trip and enjoyed your break! :)
Hi Susan! Thanks and it’s good to be back. I really enjoyed our wilderness “odyssey”. We were REALLY away from it all. The scenery was just spectacular… no photo or painting can come close to conveying how it really is. Hope you had a good break, too. (I think I remember you said you would be taking one. )
Wonderful, I love watching your art progress!
Thanks, Heart! I often think the progress is more interesting than the finished painting : ) Have a wonderful day!
