Cougar Peak #209

4.75" x 6.75" Acrylic on Paper

On this beautiful morning I started out on a wing of black.......or a Blackwing 602 that is. The Blackwing is pencil with a 4B lead that many consider to be the most perfect pencil ever made, and they are willing to back up that claim by the enormous price they are willing to pay for the few remaining pencils, since they are no longer in production.

So with my Blackwing in hand I did my initial sketch, just trying to get the creative juices going, not sure in which direction I would take today's painting. Finally I decided to finish my image using acrylics, using my similar method of laying in the big shapes and then working smaller from there.
