Mountains (a Series – Part 2)

In this part 2, I share more mountain paintings, a few more from the Banff region with a couple more based on reference photos from when I cycled the “Golden Triangle” in May of 2010.

Mountains (a Series – Part 1)

Living in the Canadian province of Alberta, the Rocky mountains have always been nearby and not an infrequent subject for my art (although not nearly as much as I would like). In this 2-part blog post I will share my take on mountains as subjects for landscape paintings.

All of the works in this “Part 1” were painted in August 2009 when I spent a week at the Banff Centre.
