From the mountains to the Livermore Valley…


After painting on location at about 11,750 feet for an hour and a half,  it was time to head back down the trail.   Fortunately, I had secured the painting between the foamboard, as the usual afternoon clouds brought rain half way back to the trail head. 

Several months passed before I returned to work on the pastel back in my studio in California. There is nothing to compare with working on location.  But, with some photos for reference I was able to complete the painting started in the mountain meadow.
