Cougar Peak #202

4.75" x 6.75" Acrylic on Paper

These summer mornings are most enjoyable, especially the light, the smells, and the stillness in the air. The mountain as always stood there, bathed in the morning light, just waiting to be painted. For this painting, as I have done of late, started out with loose sketch with my paints, and from there blocked in the rest and came back in with the details. I seem to end up capturing the mountain a a little bit different time each day, and it is amazing how the light temperature, shadow, etc...can change so quickly. It is always fascinating trying to be able to capture those subtle differences.
