Now it's time to move on to the next series or theme - Mountains - which is viewed along hiking trails I've been exploring for about a year by now. The first one is from last Hurricane Ridge trip at the end of summer. It was at elevation 6,000 ft Klahhane Ridge I hiked. 24x32. I just started drawing.

But at the same time, I want to start a new landscape painting as well, which I haven't decided what to paint yet.

First I need to make another big batch of sky colour and re-shape tree edges on the island with sky holes. Then bring up background trees/forest to be lighter. I would touch a little more on the greens and yellows on the island to give them more value contrast. Then finally re-work on the edges of stones to give more sense that most of them are submerged.
That's all I have to finish this piece. After all, this would be one of my best paintings ever. I decided changing the title to "Summer Dream - Crescent Bay" because this view looked exactly like a summer dream in winter.
