In the Studio Today... Plein Air at Pine Mt.

Wednesday, May 23, 2007I hiked up Pine Mt. in the Marin Watershed off Fairfax-Bolinas Road with my dogs today. I need a lighter easel... It was a good workout! There is a pine tree about 1/2 way up to the first crest of the Mt., which provides great shade for painting. It was 80 degrees today, so I couldn't have done this with out the tree! I spent about 3 1/2 hours blocking out this painting today. It is White's Hill from Pine Mt., with Loma Alta to the right, I believe...I can't seem to capture the right colors in a photo, even with natural lighting. It is fairly pastel in tone, at the moment.
