"Antelope House Overlook" 24" x 36" oil/c

Step 2: The block-in.

The cliffs at Canyon De Chelly have
these large dark drips that run down
the sides. Knowing this I block in the main
cliff to give it time to dry before
coming back to paint over it. Once this
is done I move on to the ground plane
then to the front cliff. Satisfied that
the relationship of the main center cliff
and the foreground cliff is what I want I
proceed to block in the distant cliffs.
