Colorado Gold aspen original watercolor painting by Nita Leland

Colorado Goldby Nita Leland

Trail riding through the high country in the Colorado Rockies, I was amazed at the size and color of the aspen trees. The trees are tall, their trunks sturdy, and the quaking leaves radiate a magnificent golden glow to the entire landscape. After the foliage washes were laid in, I used several hand-cut stencils to sponge out the leaves.

This watercolor is in Exploring Color, p. 87, illustrating a triadic color scheme.
