Plein air painting at Gold Creek
Liz took a pic of me at my painting spot. I was talking, I guess.
There were lots of tourists panning for gold in Gold Creek.
My surface was an 8 x 10 Ultralight Artist panel from
these guys and I think you can also get them from DickBlick.
The problem was that the surface soaked up my water soluble paints very quickly and it is almost dry already! I couldn't get much value perspective going on (the mts across the channel are too dark).
I am thinking I will finish this painting with pastels. The oil painting will be my underpainting.
You may remember the painting I made last year, June, I think,
that was a small 6 x 6 incher called Yellow Raincoat?
Here is the photo in situ. It sold and I delivered it a few weeks ago!

I will post the finished painting if I get it done.
I have begun my next large format K River painting!
Thanks and stay tuned!
