Mountain Music, palette knife, lake landscape

"Mountain Music"

I did a unit on Monet with my kids summer art class. So this demo was originally done in short choppy brush strokes, very similar to Monet's style. I liked the colors and wanted to finish it, but I wanted the mountains bigger and more rugged so I could add snow to them. Used a painting knife and started with the sky, and re-worked the whole thing just for the fun of it. I thought I would make it very abstract, but as I worked it became more and more detailed. A little of my obsessive quality shining through I suppose!
