This was a demo I did last night for my pastel class demonstrating atmospheric perspective.  There's lots of that in Montana this summer with thick smoke from all the fires.

Down Canyon

This is the view from Mountain Village at Big Sky, Montana.  I had gotten up before dawn to watch the sun rise over the mountains.  It was a beautiful subtle sky with thin clouds that reflected the rosy hues.  To capture the breadth of the view I decided to paint on three separate panels and frame them together.  The frame is a beautiful black frame with a glossy finish.

Rocks and River

This scene is along the Missouri River near Cascade, Montana.
There was a full moon rising in a very clear sky but there was a pink glow on everything from the setting sun.

Big Sky

   Lone Mountain dominates the landscape at Big Sky.  I got up early one morning to watch the sun illuminate the peak and work her way down her flanks.  No snow, it was early fall.
