Mighty Mountain Lake

BJS 14 Mar 2019

I hated the mountains as I worked on them... Once I stepped back, they were my favorite part of the composition!


Your mountains are fabulous, they are so rugged! I can't get to grips with knife work like bob does, and I was constantly fighting with it. Occasionally it works but there's no consistency. So I just do my own thing when it comes to using the knife and I enjoy that part of it now. If you find a way to get texture into your painting and it works for you then that's the right thing to do. I think that the tools we use need experimenting with to get the most out of them. I did, and I discovered a great way to paint cliffs and I can't wait to get stuck into my next one. I like the openness of the branches on your trees too, it's nice to see a bit of background between them.

Thank you!
