View To Rainier oil 8" x 6
In the fall I painted some other views to Mt. Rainier, but I keep thinking about the beautiful looming mountain. One of the things is a surprise about being in the park is that the mountain seems so close and ever present. The paths and trails are numerous and the color in late fall can be beat! I have some Claessen's #66 linen that I hadn't used for awhile and I loved using it here for texture and the way it grabs paint off the brush. It was a good match, and a nice departure to have a little more texture to work on.
On another subject, I have a free Artbyte for you at Daily Paintworks. What's an Artbyte?? It's an Art tutorial and this one is on using transparent and opaque paint to enhance your work. Take a look and let me know what you think. Should I attempt another?? hmmm.......
