Pikes from Northgate in Spring
I've painted this scene before. It's located just outside my neighborhood. I wanted to catch it later in the day and this time it's in late Spring. The sunset strikes just the Northeast face of Pikes Peak, making things just a bit more interesting visually. While Pikes is certainly a beautiful mountain for painting purposes it can be a bit drab. It's rather flat-ish, which is why so many drivers can reach the top, but lacking steep angles makes it less than ideal to paint sometimes--that is until the light hits it just right.
Oil on canvas, 16" x 12".
