Painting on Site

Some times one must adjust to your location as was the case of the glorious day we painted Sand Harbor at Lake Tahoe.

I had to adjust my easel between the massive rocks and position my umbrella for shade under the last hot Indian Summer day.  One of the interesting things about plein air  painting is that what you are looking at changes during the short time you are painting.  This was the case of this scene.  Capturing the mist upon the lake which later evaporated as the sun came up over the mountain ridge making the lake sparkle it’s noted magnificent water colors.

As a reward after the painting session we had a great swim in the frigid water, the last of the summer.  A memorable day.
