A Peak Experience

I got this commission last Friday, and decided to
go ahead and do it quickly. A local man wanted
this watercolor of the mountains, only larger. So,
I am doing it a little bigger for him. It is going to
go in the lobby of his business, and he already had
a frame that he wanted it to fit in. This particular
mountain was in Alaska. He has a condo in Park
City, Utah, and loves the mountain scenery. I
told him I would do a couple for him to choose from.
So here goes the first one..
In watercolor, you put down the light washes first,
and then build up the layers, getting darker in value
as you go. This is on hot pressed Arches paper, which
I really like for landscape. Will post the finished
project soon.
