Painting # 10 - Snow On The Mountain
We had stormy weather last week that dropped a few feet of snow on our mountains. This is a view from the valley and a half block from our house. The Saguaro cactus grows in front of the house and it did stick up against the mountain view. And the bit of blue was really there.
Again I used wet-in-wet for the sky. I'm not really stuck on skies but they are so beautiful in Arizona I keep wanting to paint them and am getting quite comfortable doing it.
I was very happy with the way this turned out. It is much more impressionistic than I normally paint but I love the play of light and contrast.
Of course I used this for my Cactus Monday post also.
