Can you find the tiny people up near the top? I wanted to make this landscape different, and use nonlocal color, along with having one color be predominant. I also wanted to work on the theme of man being insignificant in comparison to nature, hence the smaller size of the hikers at the top, and the fact that nature has worked to create the impasse which they cannot navigate.
This piece is created on paper prepared with gesso, and all the lightest areas were lifted out with a wet brush. It's like sculpting on paper.
