Heading for the mountains

I'm off with my daughter for a short camping trip. We'll be seeing some pretty amazing forest and mountain scenery. It will be a great opportunity to do some field studies and shoot some photos for inspiration this winter. I find that I really enjoy the process of gathering info in the field then working on a larger oil in the studio. Plein air is fabulous but the time restrictions can be very frustrating.

The painting with the tress shown is in progress. So far I'm happy with the sense of depth I'm achieving. I look forward to working on it this weekend when I get back to the studio.

I really like the dappled light on the trees as well.
