gouache on matboard  3 x 5 inches

This is another take of the same photo I painted and posted yesterday.  This time smaller... the measurement includes some of the matboard in the scan.  I taped around where I painted before starting.  My plan was to paint this one looser, but almost always when I use a photo, I seem to want to paint every detail.  Maybe I should use a bigger brush. 

The reddish color in the trees are dead lodge pole pine. The photo was taken in late summer.

I'm liking this challenge.  So far, I've been anxious to go to the studio every morning.  I hoping to get more than one painting done some day.  I did part of this one yesterday and started another today, so maybe tomorrow.
