"Aspen Shadows", plein air oil painting

"Aspen Shadows", 12 x 9", plein air oil painting

I am disappointed in the way this photo turned out -the painting is very rich in colour, but I just couldn't get it to show up in the photo -you will just have to use your imagination! I painted this with painting buddy Ingrid Christensen, who is an amazing painter -I especially love her figurative work. It was an exceptionally hot day and the cool shadows of this group of aspens on the hill looked very inviting.
