Tracy Haines pastels paintings landscapes crested Butte Colorado wildflowers mountains hills streams

Title:  Hill's Pattern in Crested Butte
Artist: Tracy Haines
Medium: Pastel on black Canson mi Tientes mattboard
Size:  8x10

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 pattern the hills and trees made, and the hint of the stream leading the eye comfortably into the composition.
