|Chamisa - 6x8", plein air|
pastel on cardstock
After lunch and critique at Kelly Place, several people stuck around to do a series of quick paintings at a different location. I was late leaving, so I just drove up the highway a few miles and painted this blooming chamisa (also known as "rabbitbrush") by the side of the road. I timed this one to be 30 min. or less.
I actually got a third painting almost done - a 12x12" - after this one, at the trailhead to Sand Canyon, but I don't like it enough to post it. However, it brought my plein air paintings total up to 90 for the year!
