Mountain Views, original oil painting

Inspired by some historical photos, I painted this tipi with a strong mountain scene. Much different than my usual tipi’s and wide-open spaces.

I may paint a larger one someday!

Just for fun, I used Photoshop to change it into a monochromatic type image. The photographer in me wants to see it in a light brown or black & white…

In this sepia type version, my eye is drawn more to the tipi/figure which is the focal point and has the most contrast. Since color is distracting, this is a good way to also check my values, and make sure no other elements are competing too much with my main subject.
