The Road Out

The Road Out, 8 x 10

Here is another piece from Colorado. It is a plein air study, which I didn't have time to clean up until today. I wanted to paint outside this afternoon, which was beautifully sunny and cool here in Austin. Unfortunately, I didn't have any new panels, so I finished this in order to get at least some practice for the start of Laurel's next plein air class, which starts Wednesday. Note to self: get panels tomorrow!

Great depth. Wonderful job with the bright foreground and the mountains fading in the distance. And the road really draws you into the painting. Looks like a fabulous place to plein air! It looks very peaceful.

Very nice, Stephen. You handled the shifts in value and perspective well.
