Linocut in Progress: The mountain

So  here it is... proof that I was not kidding when I said that crazy purple was going to be snow.

Sunset linocut: Step 6, the mountain emerges. I left this image file
embiggenable with a click if you'd like a better look.

Fun, eh?

I think one more dark is in order... in the lower parts of the mountains and maybe just a wee bit in the clouds. I like the tone of the clouds as it is now, but I'm afraid that another dark in the foreground will kill the drama.

With the snow fields defined, Salida-area locals ought to be able to identify the peaks.  At least I hope they can.

Unfortunately the big finish will have to wait until next week, since I'm off to Denver for the weekend. Stay tuned!


  1. Such a depth ! It's becoming a dramatic landscape.

  2. Really, really nice Sherri! Love how you handled the clouds.

  3. Very fun! Good luck with the Summer Art Market, if I'm not to late with well-wishes.
