Just back from a long weekend in the Sierras.  Alas, the weather was not exactly cooperative.  Had a good day Friday, but Saturday it was both raining and foggy.  The snow scape painting I did was a smaller, 6×8 plein air sketch.  I painted on linen on board, definitely my favorite combination right now.  The linen was toned with a pure Yellow Ocre color, something I picked up from Ted Georschner.  I left bits of yellow show through between the strokes, which gave the painting a nice warm glow. I had fun with the shadow patterns, and think the composition works really well.  This may make a nice studio painting…we’ll see.
Although it rained and stayed foggy all day Saturday, we ended up having a great time at Sam and Phil’s family home on Alta Lake.  Ate, played cards (Shanghai Gin-Rummy), and had lots of laughs.
Of course, Gracie and Jackson have fun, wherever they go.  This is their play time at the cabin (which is at about 3200 feet, no snow)
