Latest Plein Air Paintings

We've had some decent weather for outdoor painting lately. A little fog last week at Edmonds though that surprised us as it was sunny all around except at the ferry terminal where the cold water caused the fog.

Here are a couple of paintings from my first visit to Olallie State Park. The Snoqualmie River flows through the park and the rocks in the water have iron ore or some other reason for an orange tint which works great against the background of green trees. I exaggerated the color of the water but didn't think you'd know unless you were there. LOL. I also painted a double waterfall a little further into the park. That one is 16x20 while the two painted on site are 8x10.
