The Alps

The Alps


watercolor,
60cm x 45cm,
100% cotton paper,
painted in 1997.

Many of my plein air paintings have been done in difficult conditions! This painting was done out in open bright mountain sunlight. There was not any shade. I just kept painting layers of wet into wet watercolor. At the end I simply carved out the barn and the limestone cliffs with a painting knife. A bit unorthodox but it worked.
