Tracy Haines Original fine art landscape plein air colorful Colorado snow water trees painting

The morning started out overcast up at Lair of the Bear.  Well into this plein air piece, however, the sun popped out and I did what every experienced artist knows better than to do:  I chased the light!
My teacher/mentor, Kevin Wechbach, would say that I have not clarified the visual approach here.  Is it light and shadow?  Is it local tone?    Still, ( and don't tell Kevin) I like the spontaneity
and freshness of the piece.    It is an 8x10 oil study.
Artists:  join Plein Air Artist's of Colorado ( PAAC) and start painting with us!
