Those of you familiar with my work know how much I enjoy rendering mountain shapes and the challenge to create a sense of depth on a two dimensional surface. This painting has many layers on it, as those layers dry and meld together the colors become richer and deeper, an effect that is impossible to achieve painting Alla Prima. About six months ago I started making more vertical strokes while painting mountains. It is always interesting and exciting to me to watch myself make different, un-familiar movements while painting and yet knowing that something wants to be expressed. I am looking forward to exploring where this wants to go.
