Pikes Peak Daydream (as of Nov. 26, 2019)

I continued working on this painting today. This mountain landscape is inspired by a photo that I took back in March of 1979, during a trip to Colorado. (My reference photo is posted here, Nov. 23.) Today I tried to figure out where the lightest areas are.  Then I added some mid-range colors, taking the neutral brown of the photo a bit closer to pink.  (Colorado soil naturally has a red cast, and that is intensified at sunrise and sunset.)  To be continued. . .
