In contrast with my previous post where I was presenting calm peaceful landscape, this Landscape With Mountains surely has some drama going on. 
The diagonal brush strokes of the bursting clouds in the sky, the triangle shapes of the mountains and silver ripples on the surface of the mountain creek; all deliver active energy of the Nature and the stormy moods. 
I wanted to mix realism in watercolor with impressionistic technique here; and, using a golden ratio in the composition, I invited the viewers into to the scene,but allowed them to be safe observers looking at the painting from the comfort of their homes.

In Every Piece Of My Art There Is A Piece Of My Heart And A Sparkle Of My Soul

Loose and Fast – 20 minutes Challenge

Canyon, mountain, rock, sky

Yesterday I was in the process of painting a lot of details on one of my Still Life paintings when I received an e-mail from my son. He is traveling for business to Colorado this week; he visited very interesting places and wanted to share great sightseeings. I was pretty tired from all that meticulous details of my other painting and I needed to loosen up. I took one of his pictures and challenged myself for 20 minutes. Result is here: Colorado Mountains.
