Abstract, Mixed Media Landscape, “Foothills” by Colorado Mixed Media Abstract Artist Carol Nelson

"Foothills", 6x24, mixed media by Carol Nelson

There are wonderful moments that happen from time to time in the studio. This painting started with a random application of texture compounds.

Then, with a neutral palette in mind, I poured black, white, and sepia colors and let them wander. Turning the canvas in different directions, I was struck with the landscape image that became this painting.

Mostly, the painting painted itself with a little guidance from me. After I saw the landscape forming, I added some metallic colors of bronze and silver, and a bit of micaceous iron oxide.
