Two Mountains by Paul Patrick Morrison

In these two landscape paintings by Australian painter Paul Patrick Morrison, mountains appear as anything but tranquil. Instead, using vibrant color, sharp contrasts, and almost violent compositions, these mountains feel both beautiful and dangerous, dynamic entities that must be reckoned with.

And indeed they are. Mountain 1, is in fact, K2, the second tallest mountain in the world.
