Long Scraggy Peak 8x10 oil
PAAC Paint out at Dawson's Butte. I decided to try a different approach today, and use only dabs of color on the entire painting.  I started with a dry toned canvas, and lightly sketched the scene with gray pastel pencil.  Then I mixed four piles of paint for the general colors - dark mountain, light mountain, trees, and sky.  I compared the value and tone on the palette before painting.  I painted spots of the four colors, then mixed and added more different tones as needed.  This painting went very fast, and I love the thick juicy dabs of paint.
