Into the Mist
A bright sunny morning drive leads toward an unknown destination beyond the mist.
Tucked at the edge of the Appalachian mountains in Georgia, I saw sights like this often. The cool morning mist hinted at sights unseen. It aroused my curiosity and tempted me to leave work. I didn’t, but the temptation was there!
With this image, I started with 2 main colors. Then I tweaked and pushed, adding and subtracting along the way. Using both casein and watercolor allow for this degree of manipulation.
When I was satisfied, I added a thin 18K gold border. Then the piece was gently waxed to protect the surface.
I hope you get a chance to take an early morning drive like this.
If you can’t right now, it’s okay.
Just grab this painting from my website. Stand it close on your desk and let it take you there.
If it’s already gone, browse a bit and find another that calls to you.
