By the Bitterroot (progress): June 12, 2009

"By the Bitterroot" is nearly complete. Even when I think I'm done, I can always find something else to adjust. After photographing the painting and putting it on the computer, I can see that his chin needs more definition.

It's been a real struggle to paint the last couple of days because the air is so dry here, especially in the afternoon. My paint has been drying out and crusting over really fast so I have to keep mixing new batches. At times, it even dries out before I get the paint from palette to canvas. I'm hoping it will rain later this evening to replenish some of the moisture and I will get back to painting tomorrow.
