Mt. Diablo . . .

Posted by
DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 24 February 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Mt. Diablo has many faces and is often, in winter, topped with clouds. From my view, the south westerly side, the sun burning off the dusting of snow inspired this watercolor version. Mt. Diablo is 5 miles from home, 30 miles East of San Francisco and at an altitude of 2500 feet.

See Barbara Lee's terrific image of a more snow-covered Mt.Diablo, from another angle here.

A wonderful permanence about underlying landscape like this . . makes for an amazingly powerful image here and your treatment cranks it further.
