Yesterday I took a wonderful 35 mile bike ride on the Foothills Trail that runs through the Orting Valley below Mount Rainier and along the Carbon River in Washington State. The weather was gorgeous and I stopped to snap photos all along the route. This 16x20 inch oil painting is the result of some of the inspiration I took home. After experimenting with several underpaintings on smaller versions, I settled on this combination of a red underpainting and large brushes.
