Mt. Evans Panorama in process
It's gotten a bit dark here, so the photo didn't turn out as well as I would have liked, but you get the drift. The darks you see in the bottom acrylic lay in are the same across...what I wanted to show in process is my approach to the mountains...I sketch in the silhouette and then work with modeling paste to bring in some extra texture, which, when paint is applied works so well for those shadows and contrasts! You may have to click on this one to see the drawing and modeling paste application...I promise the finished piece will be a good picture!
This will be our Mt. Evans in snow as the winter is coming...and I can't stop it...Also, the mountains seem to look so strong when they have snow and shadows.
My application on the bottom will nearly cover completely the painted surface on bottom, but I maintain it is a valuable process as some colors do peek through and give it just that more umph! The streaming I've begun on top has become my signature of sorts, so I love to apply something that weaves throughout...plus it is just another thing that leads ones eye across.
