"Alpine Loop Aspens"

Plein Air Oil on Panel

Image Size 11 x 14

On my visit to Lake City, Colorado, the owner of the gallery I'm in there, Silver Street Fine Art, took me painting on Alpine Loop the first day of my visit. What glorious aspens! The day was cloudy, but the few times the sun came out for an instant, I quickly recorded the shadows on the trunks. What really jumped out and grabbed me about these aspens was the fantastic shape of the yellow foliage in front of the three trees on the left. I decided to use plenty of purple in the background on this one, since it's the compliment of yellow.
