Mt Edith Cavell by Elucidator Mt Edith Cavell by Elucidator
Merry Christmas!

This is a Christmas gift for my grandparents who live in Jasper. They requested a mountain painting and I was very happy to oblige!

Here's an older oil painting (much, much larger):

Oils
36 x 24 inches
Took a very long time. Many hours.
I used a photo ref. I'm not sure who the original photographer is, but google "mt edith cavell" and you'll find the one easily enough.

I stumbled across your work, very nice. Your sense of atmospheric perspective is quite refreshing. I thought this was watercolors at first, just because if your sensitivity with light, but getting the same effect with oils can be difficult. Wonderful work, I'm sure your grandparents loved it. :)

Thank-you very much! They haven't received it yet, because I had to wait for it to dry and then varnish it. You're supposed to let oils dry for some obscene amount of time, like eight months... I waited one month :P

Sweet. Soft. But still holds the power of the mountain without being overbearing. Nice!

Haha, yeah, I really tried to soften it down. If you try to render every little thing sharply, you will gouge out your eyes by the end... Thanks :)

That's wonderful, I love all the colours in the reflections of the light in the water... Fascinating how you can make such a warm atmosphere with all these blue and green tones. A great painting!

Thank-you! I'm really glad the warm atmosphere came through. I used a lot of burnt sienna washes to imply warm sunlight, so maybe that worked!
