Ain't No Mountain was painted using a technique I usually reserve for my abstract work. A mixture of acrylic paint and various liquid media are applied to the canvas using my fingers. The paint is then pressed onto the canvas using plastic film or other materials. When the plastic is peeled back the paint breaks into a variety of forms which mimic the look of stone, trees and meadows. I then use a brush to add glazes and depth to the painting. The sky and clouds were painted using a brush in the traditional manner.
