Art Pearls

My journey in search of pearls through painting and drawing

Lake Louise, Canada

This is my first submission to Virtual Sketch Date. The reference photo is provided by Debbie Later. I modified my painting a bit from the reference photo. I felt that in reference photo the mountains seem to be dividing the composition exactly into two halves; so I moved it off-center. I felt like I have improved a bit in acrylic painting. Let us see how it would progress.

The panel is the same as the one I used in my previous painting titled “Reed maces”. Somehow I did not like that painting. I completely gessoed it over and reused the panel for this painting. Isn’t that great?!!

  1. I too changed the composition…it’s all about making it your own. Great reuse of panel too!

  2. I like the vantage point you chose for your interpretation. I hadn’t thought of that. Good contrast in your color choices. Very nice work.
