Autumn Fields (Plein Air in Dubois, WY)

Oil on panel, 11"x14"

Painted en plein air in the same location as "Glowing Aspens". I pulled way in on my view of this scene which made working out the composition more difficult. I wanted to emphasize the light on the background mountain but again lost the magic of this piece while chasing the light. All in all the painting isn't a total failure but it could have been much nicer.
A close up view of my scene.

My painting in progress. Again, the painting was nicer in this stage, I have to remind myself that finishing a piece is not my goal or purpose in painting plein air.
