Switzerland is just breathtaking and every where you turn up in the great alps, is just another view worth painting. The painting of Männlichen is based on a photo i took from a point on a hike to Royal walk up in the ridge. I got up here from the cable car that I took from Wengen (also should note you can ride on top of this cable car.)
Here are the progress shots of the painting as I documented them at the end of each painting session.
And the final end point of the painting.
Reflecting on the Progress
It is a relatively hard challenge for me when every time I must make the next painting layer. I think because of the overwhelming amount of details i must add to it. But what I realized is putting a base layer with relatively similar colors to actual image, I can cover a lot of the surface and not be overwhelmed but feel accomplished and in that moment not worry about having to do finer details. Once the surface is covered with a base layer it is easier to add finer details which further defines the structure of the painting to its realistic view.
This painting is available for sale at this moment and kindly contact me if you are interested in the painting.
