Majestic Niagara #1

It feels SO great to be in my studio again starting a new painting. I’ve just completed my base under painting of Niagara Falls looking at it from the Canada side. I chose shades of a red and orange base (although the photo makes it look stronger than it is) because I know this glowing through will be a great compliment to all the blues and greens to follow. Quite an undertaking to tackle the falls and capture the grandeur and magnitude. A bit intimidating specially studying the paintings of the great masters. But I gotta try right, how can I not!
