"Early Morning Aspens"
6" x 6"
I started this landscape during my Plein Air workshop in late August but didn't get to finish it as students needed me, by then the light had changed too much. Now finishing it from memory I enjoyed the simplification and abstract design without getting hung up on details. What I recalled especially was the strong contrast of the dark fir trees with the sunlit field in the distant. The aspens were in shadow.
