Artwork Description

“This is a very distinctive mountain in Yoho National Park rising above Lake O’Hara. Decided to try a high alpine viewpoint with contrasting yellow larch trees which provide a beautiful scene in early autumn. I tried for a nice warm-cool colour relationship creating a true silvery (colours) alpine feel. I’ve worked on horseback in high country and when traveling at a slower pace through such surroundings one has time to study the colours and patterns. I seem to like using big strong boulders to ground the scene especially using such angles of composition.”
