I used to live next door to an aspen grove in Walkerville, Montana. Those aspens were friends. Always there for an uplift and they danced in the wind, changed into beautiful colors on a daily basis. These are from my memory of living next to the Aspens.
I used a multi layer coloring in the background to create depth with purple being the primary color to accentuate the blue in the trees. The foreground is the last of the mighty bold colors from the fall temperature drop.
