I must be having an Oil painting block as yesterday I could not seem to get enthused enough to work on my Deer painting so I went to my watercolors and began this 11"x20" Gouache Watercolor on 300#Arches Watercolor paper. Got the background in and the middle trees along with the Hay meadow started. I plan to have a big old Cottonwood coming up from the foreground that will work perfectly to give me some verticle to all the horizontal I have going on. This is a scene from the Upper Platte River valley south of Saratoga, Wyoming. After Dubois this is one of my favorite places in the country.
