Wind River- Final-Oil- 6x8 version (xpost lands)

After working on the Pastel of this scene, I was very interested in developing an Oil version. This 6x8 has more subtle and lighter varieties of color and value, especially in the distant mountain. To me, this seems to create more 'space' in the painting, even though it's smaller. The changes is drawing and shapes were less important goals than those.

Revisions will be posted in the thread-

Here is today's revision- it includes warming and sharpening the foreground/rocks/etc., glazing/refining the mountains- push and pull here and there:

I believe this is done- after pushing a few more warms and contrast into the foreground, and a bit of 'flattening' in the background. That's it!

Fine painting. To me, it has more definition and feeling of space after your changes.

I would go nuts trying to paint the details you have included in this lovely painting at the 6x8 size you worked in. I can't handle much smaller than 9x12 anymore.

Thanks Contumacious! My thought is if it cannot be done at a small size, then working larger is no advantage. The key part for me is color value, and to an extent, technique (edges, transitions, etc.). I think working larger will be much easier now-
