Lake Louise-Alberta Canada

Close ups

Oil on 7x5 archival canvas panel.
This is my late contribution to WDE at Wet Canvas. Mike was the host and provided the great photo for this piece. Thank you, Mike!
Lake Louise is Canada's "Diamond in the Wilderness," and the "Hiking Capital of Canada". This area offers a tremendous diversity of recreational and sightseeing opportunities.

I decided to go with a landscape for the freedom it offers. After doing some figuratives and a pet portrait, it felt good not to have to work so tightly.
I just had a good time playing with the color on this one.

I first toned the support with thinned alizarin crimson. Bits of it peek throughout the painting. I think that this harmonizes the painting plus adds excitement for the eye.
