I was able to get out into the countryside recently to do some plein air painting. I drove to an area known as the North Fields, an area of ranch land south of where I live in Park City. The day was warm and blustery, a typical spring day with lots of sounds and smells. Rushing water was everywhere, and I'm sure the ranchers are thankful for the heavy snowfall to replenish much needed water. I came upon this beautiful scene and set up to paint. I loved how the spring green of the trees in the middle distance became the main area of interest and I made sure to play that up in my painting.
