Painting # 46 -Mountain Pine


On Easter Sunday we took a ride up to Mt. Lemmon just for the heck of it.  I brought my painting stuff planning a big painting day.  Not!  I got altitude sickness at the >8000 ft. altitude and this pine is the only sketch I did.
I am getting so hooked on plein aire painting that I keep looking for and making opportunities.  Painting outdoors is just amazingly different than working from photos.

...this is gorgeous. I love the simplicity of it. What is altitude sickness? Dizziness? I doubt I'd do that well at 8000 ft!
