Estes Valley Plein Air

I finished a total of 10 paintings during the Estes Valley Plein Air.  The show is up at the Art Center of Estes Park until September 27.  Don't miss it!.
Roaring (oil with impasto)
"Roaring" (oil with lots of pallet knifefresh on the easel while plein air painting in Rocky Mountain National Park.

While painting at 11,320 above sea level I painted this miniature of Longs Peak from the Forest Canyon lookout in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, (oil, sold)

The shadows were striking early morning in the mountains so I painted 'Hayden's Spire'. (oil)

I had a toned warm linen panel and blocked in my purple shadows because I knew I would loose them as the time went by.

One of the categories we could paint in was a Nocturne.  I painted " Estes Glow" with a headlamp on the shore of Lake Estes. (Colorado)
The last painting I finished for Estes Valley Plein Air 2019 was 'Coffee's On' (oil with impasto) .  This sweet cabin sat above Moraine Park with a view that was nothing less than stunning.
