Another Late Bird...


Hey! I’ve been inspired by Bill too! This was from my first outing with this Early Bird Crew back in October, and was from the same spot as the ones Bill posted. Just a quickie 6x6 sketch because the light was changing so fast. I think I was there for a grand total of 45 minutes, but man, what a great way to start the day. I have some pics from that morning showing Bill, Paul Kratter, Ernesto, and Sharon(?) hard at work. Let me know if it’s ok with those mentioned, and I’ll post ‘em.

This one is from a few days later at the same time and area but overcast and hazy and none of the drama of the earlier session.

Great to see you on board Jimmy!

The sky in that first one is gorgeous. I like the underpainting showing throughout and around the clouds.

Can't wait to see more. :)

Great paintings, man. It's great to see more of you show us these views from different PoVs and techniques. Fun enough just watching. I saw that Half Dome painting too elsewhere (if that's also yours)... wish I could go back to Yosemite sometime soon...Post some more, they're nice! :)

This blog makes me I wish I were a morning person! It’s pretty cool seeing the different approaches you guys are taking to plein air. Great stuff throughout.
