Color source for a new painting

 Last week went to the Western Slope.  The Aspen trees were pretty dramatic. I liked the light green and yellow with the turquoise sky.

Driving by an old burn site, I noticed that the Gambel Oaks were creating the color scheme I wanted (along with the  rocks and sky). Gambel Oak is my favorite mountain plant--even more so now that they'd given me a new idea for the color in a painting.  Yellow-gold, chartreuse, and orange, mainly, with red and turquoise as accents.

Just finished the new painting, so will post it next, along with the prelim sketches.
