In the Aspens

This is a 10x8 study of aspen trees with their Autumn colors. This is the first time I've painted aspens, and, like with all new subjects, it was a real learning experience. I've already blocked in a larger version of this painting, and with the larger version I have done more drawing, especially in the shapes of the trees. I do like how the spruce tree turned out in the painting above; it makes a nice accent.
