Lifting the Aspen shapes from the dark underpainting, I wanted to vary the darks in a whimsical way. Adding sunlight makes the darks even more special.
This painting is from my daughter’s photo of the glacier in Iceland where it meets the sea. The water has carved lovely fanciful shapes and caverns in the ice. I was most interested in finding as many shades of aqua, blue and even white as possible, while contrasting with the darkest depth of shadow.
