Plein aire snow painting


The trouble with working in my studio late in the afternoon is that I get distracted by the views of sunsets in these magnificent mountains. Just the other night the reds in the sky were unbelievable. One just had to stop and look.
Then, yesterday after a new snow, the light on the hill of our golf course captured me and I did this quick study in pastel. Just happened to have an old 6x12 sanded sheet on my desk after studio housekeeping earlier in the day.
I should call this Beat the Clock, because that was the challenge as usual with plein air painting. Even if it is from one's porch.
(the painting and the actual view that got my attention with bluster.)
