I'm trying different things stylistically as I try to create so many landscapes in a tight time frame. Initially, I thought this would just be a sketch. Laying the groundwork for the finished painting. I started it late last night, planning to finish it today. When I revisited it this morning, I decided I really liked the simplicity of it. Using limited gestures and colors to imply a bigger picture- it worked out here!
This one is another snapshot of our visit to Montana in 2015. Imagine this view for as far as you can see. I could paint Montana landscapes forever!
