I am starting Watch Hill Sunset with Carousel Oil Painting on canvas with the famous flying horse carousel. This is a large painting, the size is 40 inch by 40 inch. I started by painting this burnt sienna color right on the the large canvas, laying out the composition. This also helps with the values or the light and dark areas of the painting. I want to keep this a warm painting with yellows, oranges, and brown colors throughout the entire painting.

I will be showing my progress here on my blog so check back for the next step of the Watch Hill Carousel on the big canvas. Thanks
