This painting was done in my studio because it is only captured by camera on the drive up to Estes Park on Hwy 34. There is no place to pull over and park on this busy Hwy. I really like painting water and pine trees. The Aspen trees were so bright and colorful. They contrasted greatly next to the dark of the pines. And the river was so full of color. I like Color and water, (you probably can tell.) Water reflects color from the sky, surrounding trees, grasses and bushes along the banks plus the soil/rocks underneath it. Enjoy!
