Painting of Two Palm Trees And The San Bernardino Mountains

Painting Two Palm Trees And The San Bernardino Mountains

 

Today I finally finished painting the two palm trees and the San Bernardino Mountains composition with acrylic paints.  This painting is based on a photograph that I took back in February, and I truly enjoy creating artwork based where I live.

The palm trunks were painted in by mixing together white and back acrylic paint, and several layers were applied to give these dimension.

 

After I painted in the palm trunks, I used several shades of green acrylic paint to fill in the palm fronds.

The painting turned out iridescent and shiny, which is reminiscent of the sky and mountains sparkling on a sunny winter day after a large snow storm.
