Snowcapped Mountains (Acrylic Watermedia) as of Nov. 8, 2018

This afternoon, I worked on this painting for a while. My inspiration is a photo that I took in Colorado last summer, a view of the mountains as we drove from Denver towards Central City. The original photo showed cars, trucks, highway, and road signs in the foreground, but I simplified all that, covering it up with digital pastel. Today I continued work on getting the composition right, revising the placement of the lines.  I have been adding color to help me see what should be where, but at this point, the colors of the sky and of the snowcapped mountains are getting close to what I am after. This is acrylic used with water on Aquaboard, 16 x 20 inches.
