New Work in Progress - East MacDonnell Ranges

My latest work in progress is of a painting I am doing of the Eastern MacDonnell Ranges, in Central Australia. The Eastern Macs are the range of mountains situated on the eastern (surprise surprise) side of Alice Springs and are less visited but prettier than the more well known Western MacDonnell Ranges. The reference picture was taken very early in the morning near Corroboree Rock and the morning sun cast strong shadows in the valleys of the mountain range, which I hope to portray realistically. I am thinking about adding some people to this painting, a small party or couple of bushwalkers, using photos of my safari party, but I'll have to see how the painting pans out first.
