Plein air Oil painting, Rocky Mountain National Park.
8"x10". I hiked a little ways down Cub Lake trail-head to paint this. Just as I was setting up, a huge bull elk came waltzing by. I could hardly breath, my heart was beating so fast. He wasn't impressed by me, so went on his way. You will see a little glimpse of him in the video. He seemed a lot closer......ha. I'll upload the finished photo to my website when I it's done. Just have a couple things to touch up, as it got a little smudged on the flight home. The park was wonderful, although I hate to see the many trees dying from a "pine beetle" damage. I guess that is natures way, but still hate it.
