Today is a beautiful, sunny 68 degree day with a whisper of spring in the air. So this painting is of the summer to come. The materials used are a combination of pigmented wax and oil stick, with a bit of alcohol ink. It began as a summer scene in the foothills and I added the snowy mountains in the background as a reminder that winter is still here. I built up several layers of pigmented wax so there is an abundance of texture in the piece.
I enjoyed making this painting and I learned some practical lessons about perspective and scale in the process. Thanks for visiting!
