“The sphinx”

Same size as the “Glacial Valley”. Same kind of remote view on a rocky hill too. This one is still under the sun while I’m already in the shadow of a near mountain. I am standing at “mirador Nordenskjöld” looking towards “laguna Marcela Andrea”.

This hill looks like a sphinx to me… it just lacks the head… 

Being happy with this simple and remote subject, i just rushed to the color, without any underdrawing. Mix a light blue for the sky, then the hill itself in warm browns and purple shadows (with some green at its foot), then dull and darker greens for a contrasting foreground. 

Quick. Obvious. Easy. Nice.
