It was very windy when I went out to paint this morning. We often have high winds in Colorado, and it can be even windier in Hartsel, up in the mountains. So, my choices were to stand in the wind or go down into the woods. As you can see, I chose the woods. I thought I'd do another shadow and light study (like I mentioned in the last post) painting this piece w/ more light than shadow. But, I was drawn to these two trees, and so ended up w/ more shadow than light. That's ok, one day I'll do a study with more light than shadow.

Interesting. Reminds me of Van Gogh's "Undergrowth" - think that was the title. I've always wanted to paint one. Good thinking to stay out of the wind!

Thanks Debbi. I'm off to Texas, near Amarillo, tomorrow to paint in the canyon. Should be fun. Will post when I get back.
