Painting Mountains

This is a value painting in gouache of our mountains - using black and white paint only. It can sometimes be intimidating for me - surrounded by all this magnificence - to attempt a full color mountain landscape. Colors change constantly with the shifting clouds and afternoon storms, plus evening sunsets bring a depth of color to land and sky that could take me a lifetime to capture - but I keep trying! The mist that can often cover the mountains after a storm has passed on a hot day, is represented by the lighter hues in this gouache painting.
