These mountain goats were on the top of Mt. Evans in Colorado. I was captivated by the glow the sunlight produced on their beautiful white coats, which still had some remnants of the previous winter coat. Despite the incredible wind, I painted a small field study of the goats while top of the mountain. This study proved invaluable for capturing the colors I saw in the shadow of their coats.
