"Mt. Chapin"

Oil on Linen Mounted on Panel

I painted this view of Mt. Chapin in Rocky Mountain National Park on the side of the road just before the turn-in for the Lawn Lake Trailhead. I added a little more snow on the ground, but basically the mountains were as I saw them. I always have fun with the shadows and light on the snow, and getting the values correct is always rewarding because it's difficult to paint into the glare of the white snow. My eyes sometimes play tricks on me! I used a very limited palette on this - two blues, one red, one yellow and white. Oh, and maybe I added my favorite Burnt Sienna in a couple of spots!
