Summit (மலை உச்சி)

Acrylic paint is fast drying, but less maneuverable when compared to oil paints. Summit was my effort with acrylic paint, trying to capture a unique color scheme as well as the light and shade on the mountain peaks. I painted the sky with acrylic paint diluted with water, using linear brush strokes. Whereas the mountain peaks were painted with thick acrylic paint using a palate knife, blending the colors on the canvas as I went along, and the result was satisfactory.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
“SUMMIT”- Acrylic on canvas - 10” X 19”
I have used limited palate for this work, comprising Titanium white, Cobalt blue, Crimson lake and a touch of Ultramarine blue. This painting was sold by Victoria Technical Institute, Chennai in 2004.
