El Capitan update

Finished this piece a couple months ago, but forgot to post the last update. Originally this was going to be a practice piece to study the composition in preparation for doing a much lager painting. However, it was so interesting, I ended up with a more complete piece than planned. I’ll still do the larger piece, but I’m not going to jump right into it just yet.

In the end, I opted to stick with the knife only for the mountain itself, but the rest of the landscape was done with various brushes. This created a nice textural contrast, which may not be readily apparent in the picture below.
