Cottonwoods Against A Blue Sky - oil landscape

Cottonwoods Against A Blue Sky             oil           7" x 7"
The Cottonwood trees along the river continue to intrigue me for their shapes and size. Here, I tried to concentrate on the big silhouette shapes for the most part, while massing in the greens on the light struck greens. This view is from a boat on the river, and I included the strip of blue water to balance out the sky and blue violets in the hills.
