New Painting, "Rocky Mountain Fall"
Hello Everyone, thanks for checking in. I've been working on some larger studio paintings lately. I've not been able to get outdoors more than once or twice since returning from Texas and I miss it. But the cure is on the way because I will be heading to the Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado this week. Part of the reason for the trip is to attend a family member's wedding, the other part is to be able to bring my paints and camera and get some quality on location painting time. The last time I went I was just getting started at plein air painting. I wasn't yet ready to tackle the complexities of the mountain vistas. I'm really excited for this trip. I did this painting as sort of a warm up to painting there. I handled it much as I would any on location subject and gave myself a limited amount of time to complete it. The next morning I touched up a couple of areas.
Happy Painting, Steve
