Sunset at the Tetons

In the fall of 2018 I traveled to the Tetons and Yellowstone. We stayed at Colter Bay which is a small bay off of Jackson Lake. This was a dramatic sunset one September night. I was afraid to try and paint it thinking it would be too hard, sky, reflections, mountains and boats. After I finished my Truchas painting I had a lot paint left on my palette so I thought I would paint something that I didn’t pre paint or draw. Below is the photo and the painting.

Sunset at the Tetons on Colter Bay, 14 x 11, oil

My palette for this painting is blue violet, blue green, yellow orange and red orange. #tetons#mountains#sunset#boats#reflections
