Clouds over Whistler

It is sometimes hard to carve out time to paint when you are traveling with non-artist friends. But on a recent Labor Day trip with some good friends to Whistler, BC, my friends graciously let me paint for a couple hours. This was the result of that effort. It was cold and cloudy up on that mountain, but thankfully it did not rain.


The biggest challenge for me in this painting was trying to figure out how to separate the sky from the mountains when the snow caps and the light part of the sky had practically the same values. I don't think I succeeded completely here, but hopefully it still has the sense of being up on a mountain on a cloudy day.
