"From Dead Man's Flats" -plein air oil painting

"From Dead Man's Flats", plein air oil painting, 10 x 8"
This was a really funny day. When we got to the campground at Dead Man's Flats, it was partially cloudy and cool, then it became rainy but warmer somehow, and then the sun began to peak out again giving a wonderful misty atmosphere late in the day (still haven't painted that one!) I couldn't believe how turquoise the water in the Bow River was. I really like how this little painting turned out.

You've really simplified those mountains and it is stunning. Is that a light skim of white paint just behind the trees? Whatever, it sends that foothill way back behind those trees nicely. I love how you did the treed part of the mountain that was catching the sun - the lighting is very "fall".
