"Midday Cottonwoods" ©

This is another Teton Valley, Idaho plein air painting where the challenge was to take the view that I was looking at, which was early in the morning, and key the painting as if it was midday, in other words "high key". Geez talk about a brain twister and yet a great lesson. It opened my eyes to a whole new set of possibilities, we already know we can move mountains, trees, add clouds and so on, but to consider that we can actually change the time of day too, well that is something to really think about.

Hmmmmmm... One day maybe I'll figure out how to do that...

It's very freeing and exciting. If you want to give it a try, when you have some time, we can paint out and give it a go.
