Mt. Evans through Aspen COMPLETED

 "Mt. Evans through Aspen"
8x10" 1 1/2" gallery wrap  canvas
OIL

This was a great experience...messing up and having to wipe it off, re-doing some...and then WHEN it was dry...THEN adding the aspen.  I suppose I am a bit obvious that I LOVE aspen...so this seemed a great marriage!  I am still getting used to oils again (it's been almost 25 years!), so I was concentrating on fixing my mess more than going wild with the strokes...or a little wild...but I'm gettin there...I find the end result pleasant...I love the aspen.  Perhaps next time I trek up the mountain to photograph Mt. Evans I will do it when there are a LOT of shadows...more sun...but, this is what we see most of the time...:)


The beads...yep...I made em...they are just sittin here til I do the demo on Saturday...and then I'll photograph them with their buddy beads all together!

HAPPY CREATING!!

There is a sense of coldness in this painting, Saundra, which is perfect for the rocky mountain top. I love your aspens too! I am interested in knowing if you put some sort of sealant over the paper beads to keep them from getting abraded?

Saundra Lane Galloway said...

It does feel cold...I'm sure you know it is because of the colors. I now want to do something springy!! I don't seal the canvas beads as they are painted in acrylic and don't deteriorate, but I do seal my paper beads as an extra precaution so they are protected from moisture. Good question!!

I must have been in hibernation...wow...I've missed so many of your posts!
I really like this painting...great job on the aspen bark among many other things!

I'm just glad to see you here Dean...The aspen bark was fun...but once I'm used to oils again I wanna play with STROKES!! :)

This is a wonderful painting...the mountains (and of course the aspen) are beautifully rendered.

So happy you enjoyed it Lokelani!

Hi Saundra: How did you make the beads? I am very interested in your collage work shop...wish I lived closer. My sister and I are beginning to get interested in it.
I really like the mountain in your Aspen piece.
