I was drawn to the deep shadow that spread across the canyon bottom and the back of the valley. Additionally, I thought about the cool, not quite melted snow on the shadowy side and the warm, sunny rocks and tips of the scrubby plants in the light. This piece gave me lots of landscape challenges: warms and cools, grays and earth tones, sun and shadow.
I tend to push my colors and really tried to stick with realistic notes in this piece. As Kevin Macpherson says, I tried to "See it, mix it, put it down. Be decisive."
