Original Creation

Reference photo posted below. I took the picture with my phone after a pretty challenging hike in June of 2021. This view was our reward. Always wanted to try to paint this but I didn't think I could pull it off. I decided to give a go and am pretty happy with the results. First time painting from a photo. Painted on 18"x24" fine tooth canvas.



Awesome! Love the submerged rocks!

This is a very strong painting with lots to look at and keep the observer engaged. The mountain is fearsome and the reflection is beautiful. I agree that the submerged rocks are excellent.

I thought it was a picture. 😍 Great work!

yeah you definitely pulled it off

Thanks Brian! Submerged rocks are fun once you get the technique. I learned a lot from Andrew Tischler's videos.

Thank you Barbara for the kind words! Love the 'fearsome" description of the mountain.

Thanks Nancy, Cold, and Felix! So encouraging to be complimented by such fine artists.

Very good.
I especially like how you can see the rocks underwater. <3
