Second Plein Air of this summer
I went to the same area along SR-530 again yesterday. It's just about 6 miles east from the spot I painted last time. This time I found a good shade so the colors are a little better than last one. I think I made good greens for the hills behind the barn. I didn't spend much time to finish the foreground pasture. I put some cattle in, which I saw around the pasture. I took a lot of photos of cattle so that I can paint some separately later.
Another challenge was the cloud covered mountains with some snow in the background. Not too bad for the first attempt. I need to check the name of the peak before painting in a larger format. I might use the name for the title. I'll keep going SR-530 this summer.
