Plein air trip

oil on canvas board 11x14

Last week we went to River View road in South Carson Valley.... there were so many great spots to paint it was tough picking one.... so we finally just stopped and painted. Of course, I took lots of fotos and have paint several using the foto references. This is one of them. The canyon leads uo Hwy 88 to Hope Valley ... Woodsford is just around the corner.
Today I took a 9-10 mile ride around the valley... there are so many magnificent things to paint here. Next trip around the loop I take the camera and plan a spot to get out for some plein air painting ... the ride is worth the effort.... and it's all right here in the back yard. Get out in your neighborhood...check it out
