Images of a surreal/mountainscape 72" h x 44" w x 1 1/2"d painting in process. It is painted on very burly hemp canvas sized with three coats of acrylic gesso. I did a pencil sketch on the gesso based on sketches done near Ross Green Lake in Wrangell/St Elias National Park summer, 23013. Then I applied a thick layer of underpainting using pallet knife with Permalba White and Lukas Painting Butter. The color is a combination of staining and glazing using oil and alkyd transparent colors with Gamblin Galkyd Medium. Paint brands are Gamblin, CAS, Lukas, Old Holland, and Winsor Newton.
