Here is beautiful Nymph Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park, with a view of Hallett Peak. Our hiking trail led on from here to Dream Lake, and eventually to Emerald Lake at the base of that cliff. For this painting my board was tinted with an orangey red color (transparent red earth). Bits of this color show through and add a lot of warmth and life. I also find that when I have a strong color on the board I tend to use more strong, clean colors in the painting, rather than toning and graying them down too much.
