Colorado Snow Day (As of May 14, 2018)

Here is the painting I am working on, another mountain landscape based on memories of my home state of Colorado.  I am trying to capture memories of the combination of bright sun, bright snow, and blue skies that you often see in Colorado.  I am trying to find a blue for the sky that will contrast with the blue shadows on the sun.  I used tried cobalt and ultramarine mixed with white.  Here is how it looks.  I am probably going to lighten that color, and maybe mix some pink tones in near the mountains.  To be continued. . . .
