Spring Thaw, Rainier Nat. Park

Spring Thaw                   oil                     12" x 9"

I painted today using a photo from our trip to Rainier Nat. Park in July. I tried to keep the edges soft to convey the soft wet ground and spring color that was coming alive. I used a wash of umber underneath to establish the basic value plan. Then, I noodled around with a variety of edges and points of color. Painting it really brought back the feeling of that sunny, cool day and the path we were walking.
