I started this piece in the fall and put it aside when I stalled out about half way through. This sometimes happens to me. I have to put it away and get some distance from it. Also I often "blast" the painting in and then comes the detailing.... ugh! Takes awhile and requires discipline when the painting is 4 feet by 4 feet. I used a lot of texture in the cliffs and the trees and rocks in this painting with impasto. The photograph does not do it justice.
Title: Lapie Canyon, Yukon
