Studying the old masters is said to be one of the best ways to learn - so I did a study of Albert Bierstadts "Among the Sierra Nevada, California".
It's not 100% accurate but I think I learned a lot.
Painted with SAI.
Any comments / critique / feedback are always much appreciated.
Hope you like it! :)
