Rainbow Valley Australia, acrylic painting abstracted landscape by Daily painter Chris Hobel another step towards the finish line

Rainbow Valley, Northern Territory Australia
Acrylic Painting with texture by Chris Hobel 
I managed to get an interesting long walk  in this mornning on the beach with my trusty umbrella in tow, it was well used  I might say.
As the weather is quite warm the beach  was busy on this public holiday and  a little  rain makes it more fun.  Not so fun now as is bucketing down.
Good painting weather  so I got a few hours work in this afternoon
. I often like my paintings very early on and should have someone there to say ... thats good, leave it.
I feel a painting needs a certain amount of time to be worthy of selling. How crazy is that. I must get over it. These are pretty rough photos as  I had to stand above on a chair for the last one as it was wet on the base.

This is the  almost finished one, I think I like the darker mood on the top picture. I always find the foreground the most difficult in a landscape. What do you think?

Rainbow Valley Painting first steps by Chris Hobel
Today I worked on a commission 24x36" of Rainbow Valley  Northern Territory Australia.... Ive made some progress its on its way but I still need to do the foreground.  I sold the original painting of Rainbow Valley recently  but another client wants a similiar painting. As it was painted several years ago, it will be interesting to see the change in style I made. Its done mainly with the palette knife with acrylics on a backgound of modelling paste, my latest thing.   
Ive made a slide show of my progress but it still is not complete so check again soon for the final installment. The rain continues after a small repreive for christmas day but at least it remains coolish...good painting weather. 
We had a  yummy christmas  seafood lunch   of Sydney Rock Oysters, Queensland King Prawns, Caesar salad , Potato salad and ice cream cake.............what did you have ?
