Rainbow & Round Mountain
16 X 12
Oil on Stretched Linen
Round Mountain is a landmark for anyone who lives in Mescalero, NM, and for those who live nearby because they are almost home. It is climbed over and over by many people every year. It isn't so tall, but it has much meaning to all who have been there.
To paint the rainbow I watched a video by Jerry Yarnell on YouTube. He talked about the hand motion to get the curve of the rainbow, scumbled the white behind the rainbow and painted the red line and the video stopped unexpectedly. I watched another guy who was painting a full rainbow and his video stopped after he painted the red line. When it came back on the rainbow was completed. So... I just aimed at it. The colors are all there, but they're mushed together.
