"Yampa River View, Colorado"


Colorado Plein Air Landscape// Original Oil Painting on  Archival Canvas panel/ 8"X10"

Colorado week: Yampa River View, Colorado landscape/ Original oil painting
      This original Plein Air oil painting was painted on location in Steamboat ,Colorado where we stayed in a tent along the river and woke up to snow one September morning.
I loved the palette on this one--which I made certain to limit. The scene was so lively and busy enough that too much jumping about with colors would only add confusion. The limited palette seemed to hold things together amidst all the texture and lively brush strokes.

Enjoy,  Eileen McCoy- Kansas City Artist
