Like most people, when I visited Acadia National Park, I was captured by the awesome view of mountains, clouds, sea, islands and lovely summer foliage. I wanted to create a painting to capture the scene.
For this painting, I started with a pink-toned canvas for a warm undertone that would ultimately enhance the colors of the wildflowers. Then, I sketched the values on paper, mixed the colors, and applied the paint, filming the process so you could see it all come together. The different stages of the painting are available below.
'View from Cadillac Mountain' is an oil painting on panel that has already been sold. However, you can purchase a print reproduction to bring the stunning views of Acadia into your home here.
Painting is my way of capturing the beauty of the natural world around me and preserving a moment in time in a special place. Hope you enjoy!
