The Conrad Jon Godly Pieces Depict Peaks and Height Throughout

The Conrad Jon Godly paintings of dangerously high mountains convey height and depth in each portrayal of the scenes. Originally from Switzerland, Godly is well-acquainted with snow-covered peaks, hence his remarkably realistic take on the landscapes that are central to his nation.

At first glance, one would likely mistake a Godly piece for a photo given his precise brush strokes and depiction of tall summits. This duality is consistent with his background as both a student at the Basel School of Art and a professional photographer, giving way to a unique merger between the two forms of expression.

Godly's aptitude for precision also stems from his studies of the Swiss Alps. While walking amid mountains, he snaps pictures, enabling him to pinpoint detailed features.
