Buttermilk Country

Looking S/W towards Basin Mountain (?) behind a rocky outcrop on Mc Gee creek. 8x10 O/P

Check out Mike Dutton's painting from the same day. Mike started later than me and caught that glorious magic hour light skimming the tops of the peaks looking N/E.

Thanksgiving on the East Side

East side of the Sierra that is. Took a nice trip the week of Thanksgiving over to Bishop with a side trip to Bodie hoping for a little bouldering and sketching. Did very little of both! Here's a quick watercolor sketch in a Fabriano sketch book, done after a great day bouldering.

A couple scribbles in my mini watercolor moleskiene from a morning trip to Bodie. I had camped just south of Bridgeport so I could get to Bodie first thing in the morning. I woke up to a gorgeous sunrise and chilly 20 degree temps. I could have spent all day there roaming around, but it was so damn cold, and I got really hungry... : )

I did manage to get in an oil painting, I'll post it when I can get around to taking a pic.
