Mountain at Sunset

Mountain at Sunset

I know recently I've been speaking in praise of the Liquid Clear, but in my recent experience it had always been combined with some other color or mixture. On its own, as in this painting, I find it a bit unwieldy with a tendency to run and react badly to even the slightest exposure to brush cleaner. That said, this painting was quite enjoyable; I particularly enjoyed the red rock mountain.

Great job! The mountains are better than Bob's work.

Mountains, reflections and trees look awesome Dracula!
I can second your experience, liquid clear and paint thinner (even the slightest amount in a just fiercely cleaned/dried brush) give troubles, I had multiple issues with that also. My only remedy against that is not reusing a brush that was cleaned very recently. I adore working with liquid clear very much (more then with liquid white) so will continue with that in most future paintings.

It came out beautiful! The liquid clear produces such vibrant colors and I am now careful to not use a recently washed brush on the painting. It gives great results but you need a lot of brushes going and can’t wash! Your mountains and trees are perfect!

Another wonderful painting, great job! I will echo your statement about the violent clear + thinner reaction. I feverishly pat dry my brushes on a paper towel whenever I've added clear to my canvas. It's really surprising how little it takes to cause a reaction!

That is a great mountain.
