This is my first painting where I work to apply the mountain-related techniques taught by Johannes in his webinars. I think it turned out quite well - much better than my earlier mountain paintings. I was also able to work in the underwater stones in the river, which was actually easier than it looks.
The most challenge part of the painting was breaking away from old habits that produced problems. For example, I overdid the white snow early on, which broke up the value plane of the mountain and just plain looked bad. The distant trees were originally too bright - again, a value issue, and I had to resist the urge to overdo the highlights in the foreground trees. The key thing is that I recognized these problems and fixed them vs. not really seeing or understanding them, which is how things often went in the "Pre-Johannes" era.
