THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
The Swiss Alps Painting is slightly ominous in nature with its dark, murky skies that surround the otherwise peaceful-looking mountain peaks. Perhaps suggesting both the beauty and the chaotic danger of nature, this painting features a towering mountain peak as its focal point, one that winds and twists to its point using a blend of dark colors and crisp white snowy hues. A patch of smooth, snowy ground winds up beside the prominent mountain peak. The background of the painting features stormy skies comprised of sunset reds, grays, blacks and dark blues to provide a brilliant contrast.
