Come visit me at booth #54
I've painted my view of Mt. Evans in every medium I've worked in, every style, so it only seemed fitting to paint it again with my current experimental way of working as I weave my way to artistic growth. There was a base of acrylic put in that you can see here and there peeking through. After that I started painting in oil. I used a palette knife for a good portion of this painting. I also worked with stamps and stencils to pull in pattern; which you can see most obviously in the sky, but if you look closely you can see the honeycomb pattern repeated; though more subtly in the foreground. There is also a bit of paper throughout as well.
This detail image shows the paper peeking through as well as the honeycomb shape repeated
The trees are applied almost intuitively...not much emphasis on realism; thus moving ever more close to my need for more abstract in my work. The rocks are painted more with color as was the fashion of the fauves (wild beasts as they were called in the late 1800's and early 1900's)
This painting comes ready to hang.
