Here's my painting from our ice age trail outing. (6x12", oil on board). I knew what I wanted to capture and didn't have a lot of time. I laid down the basic components while I was there and added paint in the studio. I remember my impression of the scene was of bright greens, oranges and reds so that's what I added. When I look at the photos I took that day they look very beige. Also, there wasn't much going on in the sky so I added the clouds. A lot of artistic license, I know, but then, that's why we paint, right?
