Plein Air Rockies 2014: Horsetooth Reservoir

Horsetooth Reservoir dusk
 My first paint day for Plein Air Rockies 2014 was at Horsetooth Reservoir just west of Fort Collins, Colorado. I wanted to capture the sunset but needed to start hours before to get the big shapes in.   I'm posting my start and ending reference pictures to see just how much the light changes plein air painting.  Although this landscape ( 9" x 12" oil) was finished on sight you can see how I incorporated the light changes.

This original oil painting is for sale. Inquire for availabilty
