I have been working on a painting that I started about three years ago that requires a more detailed approach. As I like to do while painting on one painting is to start another one. The Sierra Buttes is one of my favorite subjects, so I decided to paint it again, why not? Here is my last post Making Do During a Snowstorm
I used Burnt Sienna and Fr. Ultramarine Blue on the mountain, I feel that it gives just the correct warmth and coolness. I chose not to go into much detail with the trees because the Sierra Buttes is the star, don’t you think?
I started out loosely with lots of water and getting the feeling and gist of the mountain rather than accuracy. To me that is more important.
Both of these paintings are from my visit to the Bear Valley here in Northern California.
I enjoyed painting this one but feel that I would like to paint this over and work more on bringing depth and doing a better job in the foreground.
