"Green with Envy"

Plein Air Oil on Linen Panel

Image Size 12 x 12

I painted this during the Estes Valley Plein Air, while the wildflowers were in bloom in the Wild Basin area of Rocky Mountain National Park. This was my first painting of the day and when looking directly into the morning light, the aspen leaves were really a lime green. That is the color I put on first, to make sure I didn't lose the intensity. Then, everything else followed. There was so much green bounced light on the aspen trunks - it was truly beautiful.
