You may know from a previous post that I was having a heck of a time evolving from painting a symbol of a mountain, to painting actual mountains. A recent trip to Yosemite really helped! This is a photo from Tunnel View.
When I painted it, I actually used an image that I had warped in Photoshop to use as a reference, and got rid of a lot of the background so I could concentrate on the landscape. Hence, I was able to render the mountains as such:It still needs work, but having a point of reference helped a lot!
