Stained Canvas

I took a few days off and went to Lake Louise, so I didn't get much art time. I took a lot of pictures, but found all kinds of excuses not to draw or paint. I had started a painting of a grizzly bear long ago, so I took it along to finish while I was there, but I have a huge mental block about this painting, and always find excuses not to finish it.

Anyway, I got back home late yesterday, so I went back to work on the stained canvas. I decided that it was going to take too long to try to put in all the colors separately, so I added color all over the canvas. The colors look really bright in this picture, because it is wet, and now I am thinking I added too much alizarin crimson, but I will wait until it dries to make any more changes.
