Painting in Progress - Maroon Bells

March 26, 2015

work in progress - Maroon Bells

This is the largest canvas painting I've done to date (48"x36").  My wife and I have a very large wall in our living room that needs a BIG painting to spice it up.  This is part of a series of acrylic paintings depicting some of the most well known Colorado 14ers as viewed from their classic locations.  This particular one is of Maroon lake near Aspen.  I have photographed this location a few times and looked through thousands of photos of sunrises from this location ranging from professional photographs to tourist snapshots.  I'm trying to paint the scene in the most idealistic way I can imagine - having a perfectly mirrored reflection, colorful sunlit clouds, peak autumn colored hills, and fresh snow dusted peaks.  

Here are the two previous paintings that are part of the 14er series

Pikes Peak                                           Mt. Sneffels
prints available                                                                          prints available

Not sure which 14er I should do next.  Maybe Longs?  Wilson Peak?  The Crestones?
