Fires Above

Something a little different, at least color wise.  I love how painting on top of the elegant writer gives the paintings a surreal feeling.  I knew I wanted to do mountains with a blazing sky, but beyond that it was all kind of improvised. It was more about the feeling than the composition (but that turned out good too). 

The sky is a mixture of quin rose, pyrrol red and hansa yellow medium.  I mixed the yellow and red on the paper to produce the fiery orange.

And here is the picture before I painted it, with the activated elegant writer ink.
