Here is my painting for the Day 21 of the 30 in 30 challenge.
Another one that I actually painted over an old painting. I feels like I am just starting to understand the power of oil paints. I come from a watercolor background so I am always concerned about planning ahead. But this is quite interesting, in a good way or bad, you tell me…
Here are some step by step pictures.
The view from an awesome trail, here in Prescott.
Oh and here is my old painting that I am going to paint on top of. At first I thought that this would be distracting because of the things underneath. But once I start painting… it’s funny, I don’t see anything else but what I need to see.
Now the magic begins as the blue mountain begins to emerge… I love this stage!
Oh and soon as I put the road down, I instantly knew how ugly that was! Ughh….
So I painted over it! Ha! I am still know sure if the composition works or not but it seems to be telling me a story…

there are definitely some advantages to acrylics, i see as you completely redo your paintings and they look just great! that little car is really cute!
Thanks Mimi, Acrylics are not that opaque actually. This is oils, Crazy, I had no idea. They just covered it all up!
Love your story and the step by step pictures – interesting… inspires me to start painting on top too..
Yeah… with all the bad plein air I do, Now I don’t feel like “what a waste of a nice board”! Frees me up in a way! Ha ha!
