This painting began with layers of textured papers to build a foundation of hills and valleys. I added warm, soft color contrasted with cool dark color to create the rocks in the water.
The creation of a textured surface with various papers gave the foundation for this landscape. I was in Creede, Colorado, where the ragged cliffs protrude all around the majestic landscape. This painting captured the texture and mood of this late August afternoon.
Nothing seems to reflect light and shadow better than snow. While painting this winter scene I played with the glow of sunlight that creates color in the white of the tree trunks and the snow revealing the reds, yellows and blues everywhere.
