painting a mountain climber

Watercolour painting of a climber in the mountains

We're finishing our month of big, snowy mountains with this painting from Fiordland in New Zealand. It's from a photo I took of my husband back in 2010. This is on one of our many mountaineering trips in this beautiful and wild area just south of where we live.

We'll put together the skills we've already covered in the last few lessons on painting mountains and work with just 4 colours. It's quite a bold scene, with a small human element, which adds a bit of movement and gives the mountains a sense of scale and grandeur.

Happy painting!
