After looking it it for awhile I decided to go the route to paint something from my world in the way I work...so this will be a collage piece. I decided to take advantage of the surface to do another rendition of our own Mt. Evans. I actually think I will pull from actual paintings I've done in the past of Mt. Evans...I have quite a few shots of this mountain as it is visible from the top of our mountain...but most of them are covered in snow or shadow like the reference shot below.
This will be good to get the silhouette I want to make my Mt. Evans actually LOOK like Mt. Evans! I used this before when I did "Mt. Evans Inspiration"
"Mt. Evans Inspiration"
12x12" mixed media on cradled MDF
$220 STILL AVAILABLE...check my website!
This detail shows the silhouette of the mountain cut very carefully from acid free paper. This is a part of a series I did last year.
I like the colors in the other views of Mt. Evans I have done...so, my palette will be taken from some of these...
the colors in this detail are quite fresh and fun!
This is the end result of that detail...
"MT. EVANS PANORAMA"
From this painting I got a commission to do another Mt. Evans...
"MT EVANS PANORAMA 2"
"Mt. Evans Panorama 2" was a requested painting from a collector. They wanted more orange! FUN!
"MT. EVANS THROUGH ASPEN EYES"
OIL ON CANVAS
$75...CONTACT ME IF YOU ARE INTERESTED :)
This rendition of Mt. Evans was actually a demo for a high school class a few years ago...I don't even have this painting as I was attacked that day when I was subbing long term and decided not to return...Sigh...aaahhh life!
"MT. EVANS IN COLLAGE"
9"X12" MIXED MEDIA ON CRADLED BOARD
SOLD JUST RECENTLY!
This painting was an experiment with mixing papers and oil. I wanted to depict Mt. Evans almost totally in paper...there is very little paint added, but the trees were painted in oil.
So, you can see I have several things to choose from when putting this majestic painting on the mask...I'm going to have FUN!
