Camelback landscape done

I'm happy to say that this 24x30 painting is finished. I brought cadmium lemon into some of the highlight mixtures in the foreground plants, and a touch in the mountain highlights. The highlights really make it look "finished".

The shadowed side of the mountain wasn't reading very well, so I extended some of the highlighted faces of rock downward.

Now I just need to pick out a frame. I'm thinking a dark mahogany frame will suit the painting well.

I was flipping through some photos I took on a road trip last year, and a couple pictures taken outside of Moab, Utah caught my eye. And on that note, I think I have a new painting in the works.
