:: Rigaud Mountain in summer ::

What has roots that nobody sees and is taller than trees?
Up, up, up it goes, and yet never grows.
— JRR Tolkien

We had beautiful day, 21C with the sun shining on the plain and on the mountain… and almost no clouds. A blue sky I have not seen in awhile so I was quite happy to paint it today. One of my greatest difficulties is painting without any ink lines… I love drawing, especially with a fountain pen and to me to let go of that fine tool is scary! So I mustered my courage again and started painting my mountain in Rigaud. Well the first painting was quite overdone as I seem to want to compensate with the colour saturation due to the lack of ink lines -))) My second one is better even though overworked and most colours are too strong, but heck it is presentable.
