Painting outside in the Mountains

Being in the High Sierras is a treat all in itself. We pulled into a spot on the road to Blue Lake in the USNF wilderness area ... found a spot in the shade to park the car and I was out there in a flash. Generally I take acrylic paints and a small canvas board for sketches. This was a scene not far from where we landed. One thing about sketching.... everytime I look at the sketch (doesn't matter whether it is good or not) it brings back vivid memories of the day...the spot.. the feelings absorbed while there.
Can't wait till we go out for another plein air painting adventure.
Plan an adventure for yourself .... make it soon.
