Painting Plein Air at Boulder Creek on January 10
Perched on the rocks and ice below a bridge, I learned the challenge of painting with watercolor outdoors in January in Colorado is the ice that forms on my palette and paper as I worked. It makes some interesting patterns! I worked very quickly for about 45 minutes, took time to sit in my car and dry the under painting by blasting the heater and went back out to work for another hour. I'll be happy with this painting after taking a little more time in my studio and making some refinements.
