Even though composition and values are the most important elements in painting, it's color that draws us to stop and look at a painting. Color draws out more emotions in us. So when we paint outside we want to do more than copy what we see. We want to know our palette well enough to be able to mix and apply color that suggests the light and drama that we see in the landscape. I recently painted in Teton National Park and Southern Utah and I talk about the color choices I made on a couple of the paintings in this video.
