Caribou!

I hope you like caribou. This painting will be in-progress for a while. It is a big one at 34" X 80". I've been looking forward to doing another caribou piece and am excited about working on this.

Once again, my oak easel has been modified with horizontal support bars which are screwed into the uprights on the easel. These bars have a grove at the top and bottom to keep my hand-gessoed board supported on the ends. They also allow the piece to be slid from side to side so I can keep the portion I am painting in the center of my easel and close to my palette. 

Here you can see my turpentine underpainting of raw sienna and burnt sienna.
