"Lovely as a Tree," a Plein Air Painting by Betsy Johnson Welty

Added on by Betsy Johnson Welty.

This oil painting was a 9" x 12" plein air work that I painted in Denver's Harvard Park just days before Thanksgiving when the city was experiencing unseasonably warm weather.  The tree was backlit and my goal was to capture the sunlight's "glow" as it illuminated the golden autumnal foliage.
