I am working on an acrylic painting for my son's new flat. Actually, I started this painting a year ago, and never finished it, but my son kept asking me to finish it, so that he could have the painting.
Sometimes I get stock with a painting, and need to decide how to move on with it. In most cases, I just set it aside for some time to let it rest. On this painting, I needed to finish the landscape on top of the giant's hat, but I needed new inspiration on what to paint. My son is moving away from our home town Silkeborg (Denmark), to study in Aarhus, and he has been worried that he will miss Silkeborg terrible. I had some old water colour sketches from Silkeborg, that I did when he was a child, so I went through my sketch books to find them.
This spot is called the Sky Mountain, actually it just a hill side, but I have painted this view many times during the summers we spend on the lacks around Silkeborg.
This is a spring painting of the same view.
