painting mt aspiring - step by step

Tititea / Mount Aspiring from Bevan Col

I thought you might be interested in seeing some step by step photos of my latest New Zealand mountain landscape - Tititea / Mount Aspiring from Bevan Col.

The painting is from a photograph I took of my husband, David, when we climbed the peak with our friend Alexis in 2012. Including my husband made the painting extra special for me, although all the mountain paintings I am doing at the moment are of scenes that hold many memories for me.

Painting details:
Ink & watercolour on Fabriano Artistico, cold press
55 x 38cm
