About this painting
A painting about ending a relationship.

A distant grey figure, bent low turns away, heading for a sharp and unpleasant wasteland of angular mountains. In the brightly coloured foreground, a mountain mourns her abandonment.

Technical details
It's rare to combine bright colours and subtle greys in one painting, most artworks have uniform chrominance. Here, I applied rules inspired by psychology to reflect the current and real in strong chrominance, and the distant and vague in greys. Similar tricks are used in mental visualisation processes to reinforce positive thoughts and dissipate negative ones. The first study featured a green sky.
