Mt. Revelstoke Mist: Sky Painting IV

mt revelstoke mist maria peagler watercolor
Mt. Revelstoke is a tiny Canadian National Park popular with skiiers, as it has the highest vertical peak in the country.  We visited in the summer, and at the top of the peak was snow.  In June.  Quite a surprise for this Southern girl.

We drove to the top of the mountain on the Meadows in the Sky parkway.  On the drive down, it started misting over Revelstoke right at sunset, and it was a breathtaking scene.

This is Day 4 of my #30paintingsin30days with a sky theme.  Getting the mist effect on the mountains required quite a bit of practice without it looking overworked.  I’m happy with the way this turned out.  I wanted to emphasize the light and the depth of the scene, neither of which are easy in landscapes.

Price: $100
