Mt Rainier in Green by MegLyman Mt Rainier in Green by MegLyman
The first of what I'm sure will be numerous paintings of my new neighbor, Mt. Rainier.

~8x11" oil on paper

I'm not qualified to critique oils, so I'm going to ignore that side of the technique and focus on the scan as if it were done on the computer.

The focus on the piece is lighting, I can see the dark and light sides of the hill and can really feel the depth of the top half. That depth falls off as the picture moves from the 2nd 3rd to the bottom. I think we're seeing trees, but I had to look really hard to make them out against the sharper and deeper shades in the hill.

The colours are spectacular. Reminding me of dream sequences in film and chalk or projected mediums in stills. The mix of greens, yellows and pinks works quite well. The light green surface works well except for the small blob in the left side which is out of form and possibly a bit too light.

I like the sky, and it matches the colours used in the rest of the piece really well. Over all the composition is fitting with a low detail rating, I think is a part of the intended style. More details might move the painting towards a higher technique rating.
What do you think?

Beautiful!
If Mt. Rainier is your new neighbor..
and If you keep your eyes on the night skies..
There is a pretty good chance that you'll see some new 'visitors' as well.
I don't know exactly what it is about the place/the area..
But it is one of the best places to witness some strange things going on overhead.
I don't know your feelings on the subject... but I think you'll see for yourself if you keep an eye out (up) . lol :)
Lucky you to live in such a beautiful place.

Nice! Most times a lenticular cloud is just that, a cloud. And they alone fascinate me.
But sometimes... There may be more to it. lol

I have seen a few very cool & seemingly strange lenticular clouds,
But I have a number of friends in Washington, and 2 different ones have told me that they've seen "things inside of them". When asked to elaborate they could only say that they were "sure" there was a "solid object" inside a particular "strange" lenticular cloud they had been watching, both said they felt crazy for even mentioning it, but they know me and my thoughts on the matter so i guess they felt comfortable enough to tell me. lol One of them is a meteorology professor, if that's any consolation. haha
He had no idea what he was looking at, other than it wasnt "normal".

Eyes up! :)
