Peaceful Mountain Valley

by Russ Haskell
(Commercial Point, Ohio USA)

This is an acrylic painting on stretched canvas 24" x 36" size. My inspiration for this work is that my wife, Carol, wanted a large painting that would hang over our fireplace that included mountains and a born or two.


We both love landscaspes and I love to paint them along with Old Barns in acrylic. The mountains were the easiest part. The most difficult part was getting the water to look real with reflections in it and making the large green areas look more interesting with suggestions of grass, etc.

I'm pleased with the overall composition and the colors that just jump up at you and make you feel that you are really there in the midst of this beautiful mountain valley.

Like the blue in your painting
by: Lee

The blue color of the mountains and water are well rendered, both charming and inspiring. I enjoy landscapes very much, this painting is the kind I would try to paint too. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Golly, what a wonderful painting
by: Guy

Just superb in every way. Difficult to find any area even slightly worthy of criticism. The hillside on the right lacks depth, perhaps, but that's a nitpick. I appreciate the technical quality of your mountains, trees and barns, and admire the way your colors transition so seamlessly. Fantastic piece!
