Colorado Spring

Hello art-a-day viewers. It's not to late to jump into the challenge. Drop us a line, or comment here, and we'll add you as an author.

Here's my post from a study I did over a 3 day period - it had some struggle in it. My goal was landscapes again. I'm enjoying painting these small ones, they are refreshing.

I still have a hankering for Colorado. And Springtime. This field of lupines and wild flowers was so pretty, from so long ago. The back hills were beckoning me into the scene.

I had a bit of struggle in this painting. I wanted to establish a hierarchy with the two trees so made the right one more dominate, and added a path so one could get into the painting. The lupines are still a bit troublesome though.

Laura, I like the rhythm of your colour choices. Lupins are a favorite of mine.
