Tracy Haines pastels landscapes paintings impressionism plein air colorado crested butte

Title:  Streams Sing
Artist: Tracy Haines
Medium: Pastel on Wallis professional sanded paper mounted to foam core.
Size: 9x12

This is one of many plein air pieces I did on a trip back to Crested Butte, Colorado earlier this July.  The scenes everywhere were simply show-stopping.  It was the week of the wildflower festival.  This year the color purple seemed to dominate over the yellow we saw in abundance last year.  I loved the way the beautiful cerulean-cobalt blue stream cut and zigzagged through the summer-green, flower- laden fields. The purple mountains in the back set the scene off nicely.
