24x26, oil, sold
Got out and did some hiking over the holidays and it was great to feel the cold fresh air against my skin. I take lots of photos when I am hiking around in our local mountains and parks. I am always amazed how the landscape changes throughout the year. The terrain is very dull, dry and barren right now so it is fun as a painter to change things up. Draw upon memory or just a change of harmony on my palette can excite a subject. I had lots of fun with the color on this one. I really built up layers of color to get to the final. I love seeing the layers pop through to the surface and show off. Lots of color.
