Morning in the Mountains

What an amazing morning to explore the colors in this mountain range.  The hues and values change constantly here - every cloud bank makes a difference.  I find I am really studying the colors I see before laying the paint.  The colors here are so different than Missouri, and the mixing is not automatic from long years of painting a place.  The challenge is invigorating, and the act of painting is the reward.  Love getting to concentrate on these masses.  Day 7 of my Artist Residency, and I have so many paintings in my mind.  If only I had the time to match those lofty ideals!  Painting number 4337 in 4337 days, and day 17 of the #stradaeasel challenge.
