Mountains of Lake Louise, Alberta – 36″x24″ Acrylic Landscape Painting by Calgary Artist Melissa McKinnon – Work In Progress

Mountains!!!

I’m working on a custom painting for a new client. We have been working together for a few weeks on how to bring her inspiration to life… now it feels so good to start painting it!

The mountain range surrounding Lake Louise in Alberta, is magnificent and the landscape views are breath taking. Lake Louise is a year round destination for tourists and if you haven’t had a chance to see this beautiful Canadian landscape in person – it is definitely worth the trip!

In the spring and summer seasons the lake is gorgeous, reflecting shades of aqua, teal and emerald. Since this painting is a view of Lake Louise in the winter when the lake is frozen and covered in snow, I have chosen to be incorporate all of those beautiful trademark shades throughout the entire painting.

Here is a sneak peak at the first few layers of color and texture…
