Tracy Haines Ken Caryl Valley Colorado Mountains trees oil painting

Ken Caryl Valley Hike( EB 132) is an 8x10 oil on 1/4" masonite prepared with PVA sizing followed by 3 applications of gesso.

This scene has been on my mind a long time. The composition from the photograph wasn't quite right, but still, I continued to love the photo every time I saw it.   Finally, a thumbnail sketch, moving the elements around until I was satisfied, helped transition it into a painting.
