"Banded Peak Revisited", plein air oil painting, 12 x 9"
I took the on site painting back to the studio to complete due to the wind and used my photo reference to finish it. I had wanted to capture the different colour of Banded Peak compared to its neighboring mountains -not sure why it was like that, but it was. I repainted where it had gotten muddy and added a clear value pattern to the mountains, thereby freezing the light, as well as adding a tiny bit of detail. I am quite happy with the way it turned out in the end.
