Yellow Mountain

The yellow gold of evening light in autumn changes the colors of those things that it touches as well as the shadows. I painted this valley last October plein air,  mid-day and was discouraged when the interesting clouds turned to rain and dulled the colors of the scene.  I repainted it recently changing the sky to yellow, suggesting higher mountains and let that set the tone for adjustments to the rest of the painting.
