Poplar Tree

I had fun experimenting with color and now it's time to experiment with shape. There are these trees here in Utah that are tall and slender. In the fall, they turn a brilliant shade of yellow. I googled "tall skinny trees Utah" and apparently these trees are called Theves Poplar. It is hard to imagine different tree shapes in the winter when they are all bare, but this is one of my favorites so it's hard to forget. The colors I used in this one are: Cadmium Yellow Hue, Lemon Yellow Hue (just a touch at the top) and Cobalt Blue
