Smoky Plein Air
The smoky skies in British Columbia this summer did not make for great plein air (on location) painting. This is the view from our yard and normally you can see the houses mountains, trees and hill on the other side of the lake. That day, they were barely darker shapes. If you look at my palette, there is very little mixing of colours for this painting. I rubbed this painting out when I was done as there was no need to keep this memory. It was good practice painting with greys. A month later, there are still 2 small smoke drifts from the fires on the hill, hopefully the rain today will help put those out.
