After several attempts to capture my view of this mountain, I decided, simplify, simplify...thought he original photo was taken when much of the snow had melted, I preferred a more snowy peak. So with some artist's license I let it snow! Since I was experimenting, I also decided to make this an almost entirely artist knife painting. After working with it a bit...feeling like I was frosting a cake..I got into the moment and had some fun. I am not satisfied with the painting though it is a significant departure from my regular style. It does open some questions for me, however....since I like working with an artist's knife (especially a new small one I purchased)..shall I incorporate more knife work on future paintings?
