This view was painted en plein air on the banks of Kidney Pond in the afternoon of an overcast moody day. Doubletop Mountain in Baxter State Park, Maine, is a striking monolithic mountain that towers over the surrounding tree-line of ponds, streams and lakes, known for it’s double peaks. It was painted with quality lightfast watercolor paint and on a Twinrocker Handmade watercolor paper that yields lots of subtleties in the washes for this serine alpine scene. Michael says, “To paint such a mountain this close with a mirroring pond reflection, burns in the memory that unforgettable nature which stays with you for years to come. The experience of canoeing out to the location and painting it from direct observation creates a visual attachment that will always bacon you to return.”
