An empty canvas - an artist's worst nightmare. I always have to tone them as soon as possible so I don't have to look at the "brightness" of it all.

My process of covering the canvas with a thin burnt sienna/red wash. It's pretty easy on smaller pieces, but larger canvases like this one are a bit messy.

The finished sketch. This is similar to a small painting I did recently titled "Suns on the Gorge. " I wanted to see what it would look like BIG, so here it is, 48x60 in all its glory. The linework will be exhausting.....
I am also finishing up a couple of commissions to ship out tomorrow.
