Final Mt.Tam Painting - 6"x6" Acrylic on canvas

From the previous post, If you guessed 

the bottom right thumbnail.... you were right!

This one was inspired by a recent paintout of Mt. Tamalpias.

Back in February 2015 I had a chance to plein air paint from Corte Madera with a gorgeous view of Mt. Tamalpias in the background, aka: Mt. Tam

I originally wanted to set up along the wetland area but it was under restoration. In other words, it was off limits. And with the California drought, it really was not much of a wetland. So this painting was imagined with a small creek and what looks to be the famous Mt. Tam off to the distance.

It always starts with a Thumbnail.... next project in progress.

Can you guess which thumbnail will become a painting???

Will post final piece tomorrow!

Thumbnails are a great way to get ideas out and onto paper. And when you fill a page, you can quickly scan over multiple ideas.... that may create additional hybrid ideas!!! It could save time (save paint) and to see if your layout has a good chance of working into a bigger format.
