"Desert Mountain" by Li H Mahalik

Oil on Telati board, 12x9

I painted this Alla Prima today from a picture, courtesy of my workshop instructor, Linda Glover Gooch, a wonderful painter and teacher. I liked the blue mountain and the warm/cool relationship with the foreground. So distinct in the "Kodak Moment", I almost wanted to do an abstract study. But I got into painting it this way. 
I believe this is the Superstition Mountain.
Painting quickly works better for me because often times I would paint a painting to "death" by over doing it:) It's really better just keep painting - paint the next one!
