This is a beautiful creek that runs alongside the Alpine Loop road just outside of Lake City, Colorado. I painted this from the road, and when I began, this was the only spot I could find that had sunlight - the rest of it was completely in shadow in the morning. I liked the effect of the light just catching the right side of the bank.
