I stayed at Wenatchee last night then went out for painting this morning.
I climbed up a rocky hill along Columbia River to set my easel, where I was surrounded by animal bones, likely a mountain goat or some sort. I tried hard but I couldn't recreate the colorful poplar trees on the canvas. Also the contrast between shadowed part and lighted part was not clear enough. It ended up quite flat painting. I'll definitely try again on a bigger format.
Even though my straggling, I really liked the scenery. I'll come back around Wenatchee before all are covered by snow.
