On the Mist Trail

Up the Trail, to the Falls, 30 x 40 inches, oil.

This painting is from a photo taken in early spring when the falls in Yosemite Valley are charging down the mountain. The technique in this painting is something I have recently come up with--it involves smooshing paint into paint to get washy gradations with a palette knife. It makes for long painting hours because the technique does not work at all once the paint is dry.
