Keep Painting, Central Calif. Artist

Posted by on Feb 9, 2018 in Mineral King, Oil Paintings | 4 Comments

That’s me, talking to myself. Keep painting, Central California artist, keep painting!

I messed up and ordered 4×6″ canvases instead of 6×6″. This means I have some adjusting to do and some decisions ot make. 

The first step is to see how it is to paint on this size and shape.

The standard/classic Mineral King view of the Crowley family cabin with Farewell Gap in the background.

Vandever is the name of the peak that forms the right side of Farewell Gap.

The Honeymoon Cabin is tied with Sawtooth for the number 2 position in subject popularity.

The 6×18″ painting of Sawtooth sold before I put it on my web page for sale. Therefore, I am painting another 6×18″ of Farewell Gap with alpenglow.

Homer’s Nose is an interesting granite formation visible from the Yokohl curve, between Exeter and Lemon Cove. I love the view, but apparently I am the only one, so it is becoming Eagle Lake. Time will tell if there are more fans of Eagle Lake than of Homer’s Nose.

If you look very quickly at this rough version, you might get the idea of a lake forming.

This 8×10″ will contain a tremendous amount of detail. The challenge will be to emphasize the trail, keeping it from disappearing in all the textures.

      Me too, Sue. It is more personal than just a random name.
