Cottonwood Country Colorado landscape oil painting
8 x 10 oil painting
Colorado plein air style oil painting, near Cortez
This painting came out of my 2015 summer trip to Colorado. We passed through many beautiful meadow and farming areas, and were pleased to see how green and healthy the trees were, with adequate water – as compared to California with its persistent drought. I used some palette knife work and a rougher than usual canvas to capture a bit of the feeling of the blowing leaves. I think it works pretty well.

The palette knife and rougher canvas really help create that look of a ruffling wind, Karen– love it.
