When Nature Invites

This oil painting is 10"x 20" on a stretched canvas that is 1 1/2 " thick.  I learned a great deal from this painting and I hope to incorporate those learnings in the new paintings that I have planned.  My palette was a bit larger than I have used recently.  It consisted of Vermilion, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine Blue, Phalo Blue, Permanent Green, Cadmium Orange, Cad Yellow Medium, Dioxazine Purple, Titanium White, Black, and Magenta.  I just decided that I needed the purest color I could get and so I incorporated more paints.  I like the results in this painting.  The format of the painting was new to me being a long rectangle....I enjoyed it.....but composition planning is of the utmost importance.
Do you have a title suggestion?  Thank Maritnealison......
