Decided to redo this painting: [link] I'm a lot happier with it, but still feel like I have a long way to get to where I want. I'm going to do one more painting with acrylics and gel to see if I can achieve the look I want. If not, I'm going to give oils another shot.
This is an acrylic painting of a girl and her Yeti sitting viewing Mount of the Holy Cross, and Bowl of Tears lake. Mt. of the Holy Cross is one of my favorite 14er peaks, simply because it's such a long, journey-like hike and so incredibly beautiful. Holy Cross is just outside of Minturn, Colorado. I was hoping to make a series of classic Colorado scenes with a Yeti present. I will try to paint more when I have time.
