    Alps - The Eiger (and Appennine Gran Sasso picture 2nd page)

    What is generally not considered is that Italy has a lot of mountains among which there are some of the highest peaks of Europe, more or less shared with the countries on its boundaries (i.e. the Mont Blanc or Monte Bianco with France) as well as the most charming ones all over the world.
    Here's a 100% watercolor (three layers sparating the sky from the other two parts) from a reference picture. No dry on stroke was used, thus details cannot be finely made and thus it shouldn't be looked at very close ...
    Watercolor are not that easy here, therefore it took more than usual, little more than a couple of hours totally.

    I made some little improvement to details and to the tonal value in the second version.

    Dear Mike, watercolors are already not that easy in the real world and require the right approach and some hints and tricks and here they're even harder to use appropriately, so I wouldn't overwork furtherly after this updated second image. Thank You!

    Thank You, dear Jasmine! Mountains with snow are always a magnificent natural show to admire.

    It looks like I reminded You some past memory, dear Sandra. Maybe that famous bike riding .... Thank You!

    Thank You, dear Pat!
    I didn't notice until You told me, but now I see both quite clearlyand I guess I could contour both on the painting to show them better, but not right now, It's quite late in here ...

    Caesar, I dont think you should change it at all, it is unique, have you ever seen Bev Doolittle's paintings, she has hidden images in all her paintings, I only pointed this out because I thought it was an amazing happening
