Cougar Peak #219

4.75" x 6.75" Acrylic on Paper

For today's painting I decided I wanted to get back to a bit more acrylic. I started out this image, forgoing the sketch and just jumping in directly to painting. Usually I like laying in my horizon line first, and then from there work up blocking in the canyon and the shadow side of the peak and ridges. After that stage is complete I come in with my lighter values, and in a sense "turn on the lights."
