Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Oil on Canvas.

This picture I started painting when I read in the paper that more than 200 mountaineers scaled the world's highest peak a day, and that there is a real crowd there. The first layer of the painting that was about a hundred people who like ants crawling all over the top. But when I deepened my knowledge of tourism on Everest and it turned out that these 200 people a day departs from the camp only one day in the year when the weather window, I decided to paint difficult weather conditions. In this way I presented a real battle, fighting with the mountain. Climbers talk about winning, conquest, battle, victory over the top - a metaphor of war. Mountain just is.
