The Alps Landscape Painting Winter I chose to paint the Alps Mountain Peaks starting with a bright purple as a campitura on the canvas. Then took a palette knife of white paint to spread on some triangles, building up texture. Soft clouds spill over the pointed peaks in a color combination of purple, blue, and orange.

The Alps

     Winter… I love the idea more than the reality.  However, I am gearing up for my next exhibit in May and thus, wanted to do a color study.  I chose to paint the Alps, inspired by an aerial view that I shot from an airplane some time ago. 

     This is a study in which I painted a canvas a bright purple as a campitura (overall field color).  It was thoroughly dry before I then took a palette knife with white to spread on some triangles, building up texture a wee bit as I went along.  I then added the soft clouds moving in and out of or spilling over the pointed peaks.

The Alps
35 x 25 cm (almost 14 x 10 inches)
oil on canvas board, framed as shown
by Kelly Borsheim

 

     The color combination I wanted to explore was purple, blue, and orange.  The cool colors were quite saturated, so I muted the oranges into a warm, almost neutral hue to use in the light areas of the clouds that sometimes appeared as cascading waterfalls over the rugged mountain tops.  I hope that you enjoy this effect.

     This painting is 35 x 25 cm (almost 14 x 10 inches), painted in oils on a board-mounted canvas.  She is available if you love her.  Just write me for more information and I can get the painting to you.
