Painted this Sunday at Alta Lake.  Just chilled.  Didn’t focus on composition, only getting accurate Sierra greens.  As per other posts, I’ve struggled with this color (especially pine trees), so am taking the time to do some simple studies.

I learned in this study that my greens have been too cool and chromatic.  There’s a lot of Hansa Yellow Orange in these greens, Ultramarine Blue, and then some Fire Red to kill the chroma.
