After sketching in my subject with a colored pastel
pencil, I start blocking in the big masses of color.
Next I begin to define my subject (the two girls
and the kayak).
Now it's finally time to put in the details such as
the ripples on the water, the planks on the dock
and the paddle. The foreground is the last thing
"Strolling the Snake River," 36" x 36" oil on panel.
