Hazy Morning Graze - 6 x 8 Color Study

"Hazy Morning Graze" 6" x 8" oil on canvas panel

When I was visiting New Mexico, I had the opportunity to go to a beautiful farm along the High Road near Taos.  There were potential paintings everywhere, and I ended up taking a gazillion reference photos. This particular scene was happening in the early morning. The air was crisp and there was a haze in the distance, making the mountains almost dream like. I loved the way the vegetation and grazing horse were backlit by the morning sun.
