Artist's description:

Soldeu is a ski area in Andorra, set in the Pyrenees mountain range (between France and Spain). Popular with snow-lovers, it provide miles of empty pistes and endless opportunities for fun.

"Soldeu" is painted with intense oil paints on stretched canvas. The snow covered mountains tower in the foreground while the clear blue sky recedes into the background. This is a beautiful painting which will brighten up room.

The sky is painted using sweeping brushstrokes in order to maintain a sense of depth. In contrast, the snow and rock are built up with a palette knife to create texture and a sense of energy. Working freely and spared from the limitations of a paintbrush, a palette knife is a wonderful alternative for building up layers of paint and also creating sharp, craggy, mountain lines. It takes time to build up such layers of paint so each painting requires numerous painting sessions. As oil paint takes time to dry, care must be taken that the oil paint sits on top of the current layer rather than smudging into it. As such, painting sessions must be spread out to ensure sufficient drying time between layers. A painting of this size takes a few weeks to create.

Sold unframed, "Soldeu" looks beautiful just as it is. Alternatively you can add your own frame to it depending on your personal taste.

"Soldeu": 12″ x 10″; oil paint on stretched canvas. "Soldeu" is signed on front with ‘AL’. Painted in 2015.
