“Black Tusk, Garibaldi Provincial Park”
Black Tusk is such an iconic view in Whistler. It’s beautiful and majestic any time of year, shrouded in cloud, snow covered or sun drenched.
This painting is composed of so many layers, and unfortunately the size makes it hard for you to see the texture and details online. I’ve included lots of close up photos below to give you a sense of the intricacies, the jagged rock, the wispy clouds, the mountain ridges peeking through. The layers seemed very fitting, as the Black Tusk is considered to be the remnant of an extinct andesitic stratovolcano that formed 1.3 – 1.1 million years ago. Following glacial dissection, renewed volcanism produced the lava dome and the flow formed its summit about 170,000 years ago.
The black paint I used has cool undertones. This colour gives the painting the faintest of faint hints of a blue grey and the promise of fresh snow in the air.
I hope you love Black Tusk as much as I do, and it transports you to where you need to be. Maybe where there are snow covered mountains as far as the eye can see?
“Black Tusk” is based on a photo sent to me by a good friend, Lincoln Phillips. He lives in Whistler and has been generously sending me photos of their 2020/21 ski season whilst borders stay closed and he enjoys the endless powder days…without me! This is the first painting of what is shaping up to be, “The Lincoln Collection” 🙂
If you like snow covered mountains, check out “Zermatt Discerned”, “Allure, Wanaka NZ” and “Mountain at Dusk”. Need other mountains, colours or sizes? Just let me know and we can arrange a custom piece.
Acrylic paint on professional grade canvas. The deep edges of the canvas are painted very dark grey to match the colours used in the painting.
