Painting at Cochise Stronghold at the Horse Trail

1

Another wonderful visit to Cochise Stronghold in southern Arizona. We found our site to set up easels just before the park land. There was a cozy spot in the shade, near a little horse trail and an abandoned stone ranch house.

Starting the oil painting, I’ve blocked in some of the middle tones, and shadow fall on the boulders above.

Closer view of the beautiful boulders that Chief Cochise of the Apaches had his last stand.

Final view of the finished painting. It was a beautiful warm day, the intense heat of southern Arizona summer fading a little.
