Sunday Dalí: The Mountains of Cape Creus on the March, 1967. Ink and watercolor on paper. 23 x 32 inches.
This work is subtitled LSD Trip; however, it is widely understood that Dalí never took drugs. He was afraid of putting much of anything in his body. He even avoided alcohol.
In all likelihood, this is Dalí’s interpretation of an experience with LSD through descriptions of the effects of the substance secondhand. The mountains change to elephants and amongst their impossibly thin legs are other scenes from Dalí’s other works.
What strikes me is the technical skill he has with watercolors. Unlike oil painting, there’s no room for error. As I understand it you can’t recover from a mistake simply by painting over it. So, the blue parts in the middle of the brown mass were placed there first.
