|Winter Mountain Landscape (Copyright Gail M. Allen 2011)|
Working in a slightly different mode than usual this week, I just completed this painting of the mountains in winter. My usual format is to give all aspects of the painting a finished realistic look. This was a study for a larger painting, and is 24" X 24", done in acrylic on gessoed board. On the larger piece, I think I will make the sky a bit larger and rework the jagged mountains closest to us. This is one of the best ways to work out the problems before I start the larger painting. These jagged mountains were at quite a distance, so I also think I may add a bit more of the underbrush I left out along the stream.
