Mountain Splendour

Teaching this at my next class..Mountain Splendour. I’ve learnt to appreciate Indian Yellow with this beautifully in Autumn/Fall paintings. Bob’s approach to mountains here is rather tricky though, so I’ve simplified it for my students.

He spent a long time on the mountains, almost two thirds of the episode, and seems rushed towards the end with not enough time left to sign his name. But once again he pulls it off with a gorgeous end result. Quite incredible if you really think about it...Bob never once went over the time limit and every episode we see was unedited. Real deal, no smoke and mirrors.
