Though it's true by January I am usually looking over the horizon for Spring, one of the most beautiful aspects of Winter for me is the exposed architecture of the trees. The bare limbs are all angles and asymmetry, and an absolute joy to paint. Last weekend I was in the Gunnison Gorge Conservation Area (about 20 minutes from home), on a bluebird sky day, and happened to look up at a nearby cottonwood. Like a cathedral with cobalt blue stained glass windows! So today I decided to try to capture that beauty with a small study, for a much larger canvas in future...
