Plein air in Rodeo

I have painted this scene in the early morning and today I got out there in late afternoon. This is the hiking bridge in Rodeo park. Another practice in painting green and forest scenes with a lot of confusing trees.

The trail was busy this afternoon. 
10" x 8" oil on canvas


  1. Wow - you nailed the colors, Carlene. I also like the way you made the focal tree have a slight angle -.great touch.
    Is that a heavy french easel you have there? Hope your car is nearby. Those things are heavy.

    1. Yes, that is a full size french easel. I try not to carry it far but sometimes the best view is worth the walk.
