This one took me three attempts to paint something I liked. I wish failure wasn't such a big part of the art experience, but it is!
This is another rock formation out at Eleven Mile State Park in Colorado. The actual scene was really quite sunny with few clouds, but I knew that this peak would be much more dramatic if the lower portion were in shade from cloud cover. So in Photoshop I pushed and pulled and masked and created this scene. I love how the color splash at the top really draws your attention.
