Blue Nose

Blue Nose
Oil on Panel

This small "plein air" painting was done with a palette knife "alla prima", in one painting session. When painting outside, you need to move quickly in order to capture the scene as the light effect changes very quickly, especially at the beginning and end of the day.

I grew up in Lavington, British Columbia staring out my bedroom window at this mountain. If you look carefully, you will see there are at least two ways of seeing the "nose".   Have fun looking for the options!
