Great Bear Wilderness, Montana winter
8 x 10 inches
Acrylic on hardboard
ready to frame
This monochrome study is the first of a blue series I have started. I did it alla prima, or all at once. I used one hue of blue, Phthalo Blue, along with black and white to create the many changes in values. It gives the painting unity and balance.
I used a photo that my sister-in-law (Annette) took. Her and my brother go out snowcatting and skiing often.
Sure is good to think about the cold weather when it is 98 degrees and 100% humidity! Florida is just miserable in July and August! But that's the price to have nice weather the rest of the year!
