Colorado On My Mind

This is the time of year I start feeling small frissons of excitement thinking about my Colorado scenery. So, as usual, I pulled out some photos and decided if I couldn't actually BE there now, I could at least paint it. My challenge here--to myself and to my students who were following this demo--was to regard my photos as a plein air scene and tackle the painting quickly, as if the sun were actually rapidly shifting on me. It was a happy painting experience for all of us, and I wish I could post all their paintings of this scene here along with mine. Oil on Canvas, 8 x 10
