Anne Gibson Snyder


Anne at work ...

The scene and set up as I begin with a blank canvas
Three transparent colors are prepared for the canvas
Laying on the color to tone the canvas
The toned canvas after it has been scumbled (smoothed)
Ready to begin
Sketching in the focal point of the painting
Adding detail in the background and foreground
Painting the mid tones (sky and shadows)
Finished for the day as the light has changed
The work in progress dries indoors
Day 2 ... I darkened the background, ligtened the foreground and added detail
A rain cloud forced me to stop for the day
Day 3 ... detail added when the wind stopped blowing my brush around
The cows are on the move and the light is fading rapidly
Finished for the day
