Fine Art by artist Susan Grace Branch - Description: A Springtime road trip through the Colorado Rockies inspired me to create this work. I wanted to capture the feeling of altitude, spring weather, layers of geography and clarity of the air in the mountains. To achieve this I have used a number of techniques and materials to help capture this essence. The sky is a wet technique using a wash and pulling out paint here and there to create clouds, scraping semi dried paint at the bottom of the clouds to give the sense of rain. The crispness and layering of the mountains is achieved with collaged painted papers. Molding paste mixed with acrylic paint creates the foreground meadow texture. Brush and sea sponge complete the details of grasses and flowers.
