Here are a couple of plein air studies I did while in the Sierra’s. We stayed at the June Lake Villager. It is a nice location to get easy access to some beautiful high mountain country. Edgar Payne and other early California Impressionist painters were on to something when they discovered this place.
I recently organized a plein air painting trip with a couple of friends in the Sierra’s. The weather was perfect and the snow on the mountain peaks make for great subject matter. This is Edgar Payne Country!
