Morning Mountains

Morning Mountains

This painting is a 5×7 inch experiment with combining a watercolor sky with heavy sculpted acrylic mountains that are painted in a quick manner that focuses more on the general shape and essence of light rather than the tiny details of the image.

I couldn’t help myself and went back over a couple spots with a tiny brush and added only a small bit of white in the mountains here and there to try and pull out that morning mountain glow bouncing over the mountains.

Glossy paint was used for the mountains in contrast to a matte sky to further emphasize the effect of light. The mountains were sculpted with an upcycled plastic bread tag.
