Cairn on Big Crow

One of my earliest climbs in the Adirondacks was Big Crow Mt.
It's a smaller peak with a spectacular view, another one of the great walks in Keene. I am attracted to how the light plays over these sculptural entities. I love painting rocks. You build a painting just as the cairn was built. This is a large pastel and I haven't quite decided how "finished" it will be. I am working from several different photo references and it is not my intention copy the photo exactly. Why do that?
pastel 18x26in.
