Bow River runs through Banff, Alberta where I lived for three years. Banff is a stunningly beautiful area and I was so lucky to be able to live, hike and enjoy the exquisite landscape.
When I first switched to acrylic from watercolor I used a lot of black to sketch in my image and built color up from there. I still often sketch in my image with black paint. In this painting, I enjoyed the old method of leaving more darks within the painting for dramatic value difference.
Below is a larger painting I did with this technique. I covered up most of the black in this example.
