Daddy Teton

Daddy Teton
Painted directly from a reference digital while visiting the Grand Tetons.
A 12” x 16” Oil on board. Mountain scenes are not particularly one of my specialties. This view was one that a painter like Richard Schmid could complete with just a few strokes of his brush and make it extremely convincing. It was a good exercise for me. I felt what the painting lacked in being realistically convincing could still be fun experimenting with color. Realizing there are different strokes for different folks, a print is still available form Fine Art America.

    Hi G,

    We don’t have mountains like that in Ireland and so the subject is just awe inspiring. I think that you do yourself a disservice when you talk about not being convincing. I think that you get the cold power of the mountain wonderfully well.
