Artwork Description

“I never know when I’ll put the oils down and grab acrylics, however, sometimes there are certain effects I just can’t achieve with one of them. This scene began from a crayon sketch I did on site and the colouring was in my memory. I wanted that high alpine lighting where it’s arriving into a steep valley and just “kissing” certain spots. The play of warm cool is important and I think the angles and patterns make for a powerful painting. If I only have my crayon studies to work from I find I do more inventive colours than if a photo is involved”
