Sold - Day 3 - 2009 Pacific Northwest :: Plein Air Painting Competition

I know, I know…..I skipped yesterday, and went from day 1 to day 3. I ended up unhappy with my painting so went out early this morning to this spot. We had a big fire West of us and the residual smoke is still hanging around. Happily it makes for great aerial perspective and a wonderful pink glow to the light. When we first arrived everything was bathed in a pink light and this influenced the color choices I made for the painting. Later the sun was behind some clouds so rather than chase the light; I stuck to the original idea. This is NOT what I did yesterday. I spent the morning chasing light and shadow with less than satisfactory results.
