Boulder Mountain View from Summer Cabins, Sun Valley Idaho, Plein Air, Art Tip #21

" Boulder Mountain View from Summer Cabins "
This view was painted from my friend Jan's incredible view of these magnificent mountains!
Art Tip #21
When you feel your painting is "stuck" and you can't quite figure out what it needs try taking it off the easel and stand it against a solid white or black background. Leave it over night and come back with a fresh eye. Often the solution is obvious. With small paintings I also put a large solid colored board behind it while on the easel to block all the distracting things around the painting as I paint(easel, room clutter, etc.)
