The last day of May was also my last plein air painting class with Karl Dempwolf.
The class hasn't been able to meet since April, so I was concerned that
I would be a little rusty but it seems I have repeated the exercise
enough to make it instinctive.
With summer approaching, this view of the mountains and the stream running through the wash, was shrouded in a morning haze that was sure to burn off later. The colors are now turning from the lime green of springs new growth, to burnt orange and sienna. The water is still running due to the recent rains in the mountains, but because of the warmer weather, there is more green algae around the edges.
I have enjoyed these classes with Karl and am sorry to see them come to an end. Karl is a mentor who has been a talented and generous teacher. Thanks Karl!!!!!

Love it!! The colors are great! I can see Karl's influence too. I enjoyed his class when I took it several years back. Wish I had learned as much as you seem to have learned! :)
WHERE did you say this was painting?... Somewhere in Sunland?
Keep painting! You're doing great work!
I was just revisiting and saw this. I like it Sharon...
I was just reminded yesterday when I was out painting that I need to keep things simple.... Simple beautiful shapes... I have finally got to get that down so I don't keep losing it....
Looking forward to painting with you this week.
