Watercolour ink and India ink on Arches rough paper.
From a photograph I found in my files, to remind me of my brother who is a mountain rescuer
i love the silvery ring around the astronaut? Very nicely done, Corinne.
Thanks so much Marriet, it’s great to have you take time to drop by and comment on this one. In fact, I wanted to show a mountain climber facing the sun while getting on the top (not an astronaut, but it must be about the same difficulty to walk on a steep hill…). My brother is a professional (a mountain rescuer) I wanted to ay a tribute to these exceptional men. Merci encore !

Astronaut?……Is this not a mountain climber, well the one thing Marriet and I both can agree on is the technique, it is very nicely done Corinne.
Yes, it was meant to be a mountain climber as I said to Marriet but the more I watch it the more I say it might be an astronaut ….I value your feedback and continued support, Jim but as my teachers often said on my school reports : ‘you can do better, you must try harder’ !Thank you my friend
this is an amazing work, Corinne….very unique!!! bravo to your brother for brave and important work…i know he loves it!! once you get “mountains” in your blood, you’re forever changed…in the best way!
Thanks for your heart-warming and awesome words dear Sally
Le mouvement du corps est bien vu, on voit l’effort fourni avec le gros sac à dos, le détail des morceaux de glace qui s’échappent sous les crampons aussi
Merci bien Ben. Je remarque que tu l’as favorisé, c’est rare chez toi !
Not many mountain climbers in New Jersey, but we do watch tv and this looked like one of the men on the moon to me. What a great and daring job your brother has. Many thanks to him and to those who work with him.
My brother climbs…….he would have great respect for your brother. As I do and for your painting.
It’s really a great compliment Val, THANK YOU SO MUCH. Well, your brother and mine should meet for sure, they would have lots of things to tell about their mountain experiences and various feelings I’m sure. My hat is off to them anyway….
Astronaut? What astronaut? The surface of the moon would be a bit crooked…. Ha, ha, ha!Corinnette, I looooooooooove the shining outline around this guy, on imagine bien le soleil juste devant (ou derrière) lui. And as Ben said, the specks of snow dislodged as he climbs are very subtle details that make this painting awesome (come dirait Chloé).
Well, il y a des images qui restent dans la mémoire après l’alunissage d’Amstrong en ‘69 que veux-tu. Mais on peut quand même imaginer le mouvement, à cause de la lourdeur du barda comme étant celui d’un astronaute….c’est une photo que j’avais gardée depuis longtemps et ce n’est que maintenant que j’ai pu la réaliser. A painting pleasant & easy to do. Merci my little sis
The achievement is all yours Corinne. You manage to achieve so much with so little. Simple shapes, simple colours and a simple design, and a beautiful result.
Douglas, I think that’s the greatest compliment I’ve been given yet, it touches me deeply. Thank you so very much for this fantastic encouragement.
Love this simple, vibrant image
That’s what I wanted to render : a simple and vibrant image. I’m glad to know you had the same feeling.Thank you heaps again, Danita. I really do appreciate your words
