This painting, Heart Mountain, is from a photograph taken on our trip to Wyoming. Heart Mountain is located just north of Cody in the Bighorn Basin. Although it has been sleeting here today, warm weather is quickly approaching. I am hoping to spend many pretty days painting outdoors. Having only painted a handful of landscapes, I thought our Wyoming photos would be good practice for me in preparation for plein air painting. And I would enjoy them as a small series, too. I welcome any critiques/suggestions you may have for me.
Also, I am working on a new surface today. I've noticed that so many of you seem to prefer working on the Ampersand panels, so I ordered a few to try myself. I think that I will really like the smooth surface, so I am excited!
