"Deep in the Woods"

Steamboat Springs, Colorado


This is one of the few plein air paintings I got to do after an early snow in October because it was almost time to leave Colorado. I had to work fast because I knew I wouldn't last too long - there was a little wind, which made it extra cold! I used very few colors and tried to make it as uncomplicated as I could. I loved the way the whole background was in shadow, shaded from the mountain, and it made the sunstruck aspens stand out even more. For this one, I used a red, blue, yellow and white.
