How I Painted “Veldt Sunset”

I’m trying to organize my Lightroom catalog – I think ultimately it gets divided. I’ve tried to diligently add key words and create collections, but ultimately too aften I guess and hunt and peck through images to find what I’m looking for.

I think divided into “Art and Related”, Photography, and Personal, something like that…

I have just over 31 thousand images. That’s after using a duplicate finding plugin and delting about 6500 images. I have found this photograph series, turning to capture the horizon and clouds, and then narrowing down to the sunset and trees that became this painting. I also found the process photos as each painting session was completed. Combined is a pretty complete process slideshow.

These weren’t taken with this kind of presentation in mind, and as I move forward, I’ll capture more time slices. The landscape photos were taken on a walk on the bluffs over Butterfly Beach, on a trail that runs through the Butterfly Preserve in Santa Barbara, California. The painting is both a sunset and a daily painting.
