Mountain Splendor 16x20 Oil On Canvas

It's snowing today in Ann Arbor so I thought I'd try a snow scene based on an old photo I had lying around. This one is done in water miscible oil, a medium I find really challenging. Acrylics, at least for me, are the equivalent of a pencil with an eraser. Oils are more like writing with a fountain pen; much tougher to fix mistakes. I really like the deep colors you get with oils. I'm sure the same impact can be achieved with acrylics but I'm still working on that. I used a palette knife to do the mountains and brushes for the other parts of the painting.
