Great way to start a New Year!
How else, but with a plein-air day!! Carole from Dayton, Nevada drove out on one of her off fridays, and we had a ball. The sun was shinning, and warm making taking photos great also. We did both, and in our photo session it was neat to see how digital photography really picks up the colors in the snow--especially the colors in the shadows! In the pm we did our plein-air stuff, trying to recall all the infor about compostion we possibley could! We stood on wood over the snow so cold feet woudln't be on our minds, and with the sun in the southern sky, moving rapidly it seemed, we had about 1 1/2 hours to catch the shadows on the mountain here behind the ranch. To bad a big buck didn't step out at the right time! We both used Uart paper, 9 x 12---Here is Carole working hard.
She is also standing on a bit of bathmat on her plywood. It worked well, and she had a nice painting when finnished. I posted both of ours on the W. C. website. Here is my work for the day.
The foreground sagebrush doesn't show to well here, but it was not supposed to be as noticable anyhow--just wanted to say there were vareigated shades of green, purple and blue in that brush. It was a fun day and can't wait to do more.
