How To Paint Mountains

Introduction

Painting mountains has always been a hobby of mine. I paint mountains to find peace, and a bit of tranquility in my own adobe.

Next, you need to work a lot with the color shades, as that is the main component that can make all the difference in your painting. With all that done, you then need to work out the details, and make your painting come alive.
