Summer Heat

Summer Heat, Acrylic on Watercolor Paper, 4.25"x13.75", $250
As summer beckons, I was inspired to post this image - a sneak preview of days to come. This painting is based on a view of Lake Champlain in northern Vermont. Sometimes on hot days, the mountains take on the golden glow of the sunset. It can happen in the winter, too, but not as often.

To get the glow, I applied more than a dozen very thin layers of acrylic on 300 lb. Arches watercolor paper, drying each layer before applying the next.
