Lake Tahoe Rocks - Impressionist Painting by Adam Houston

Lake Tahoe Rocks

Oil on Canvas Panel

This painting is a serious mess, but I learned a lot through the process. During the workshop with John MacDonald, we talked a lot about high-key vs. low-key paintings. I had this one on the docket and realized it would be an ideal candidate for a high-key palette.

The goal was to use warm and cool colors to form the rocks. The color got me so off that I completely lost the drawing, and so it’s awful blobby. Oh well, it was a fun experiment, and I feel like I learned a lot more about warm and cool colors though this one.
