I will be adding to this post as the painting develops.  I decided to create a series of landscapes that are not actual places, but rather just an image in my mind.

I started with a light application of paint, sort of roughing in the scene.

Blue sky and green grass broken up by purple mountains. 

In looking at the snapshot of the painting, I realized that I had pretty much put the horizon in the middle of the painting.

I try to avoid doing this as a rule.

I worked on the sky and added snowcaps to the top of the mountains.  I also added a lake into the foreground on the lower right, while adding heavier clouds (this does not show up well in this photograph.) on the upper left.
