This painting gave me grief. The under painting wouldn't stay where I told it to and the upper paint insisted on melting away. It was hot, hot, hot. Maybe I will put this one in the ice-box and tackle it when it cools down. :-}

Genesee Park is a lot larger than it looks. I went looking for the Buffalo but they were not around, but getting to the back side of the valley was a lot of fun. It was a little difficult for a few artists to find us since it is a big area. Next time I will be more specific as to location. I settled on this little spot looking back towards the highway. It is just over the treeline. :-) I wanted something simple to practice color matching. It is always amazing how things look differently from outside to inside to on the spot color to shadow to time of day. I thought I nailed the color of the foreground but it sure looks different back at the studio. Relative color vs. spot on color is always a challenge.
