Big difference – quick snapshot • • January 7, 2018
Above is a quick studio photo of the same mountain/fjord view I showed you two days ago. It’s now done – or at least has gone as far as I can take it before I move on. I added a little grain and texture here and there, and most importantly, changed the whole character of the mountain top at upper right.
Little differences make big differences! Here, take a look:
In the before photo, you can see that the big, bold outline of the right-hand mountain just wasn’t working. It was a remnant of the earlier picture, which was more mark driven rather than painterly. When the whole idea of a picture changes, I sometimes must sacrifice things I wish I didn’t have to. I liked that big old mark, but it had to go. I’m content with the outcome.
There are A LOT more Norwegian mountains in my immediate future – keep checking in!
