This painting was done on the way home from a trip into the city - super windy so it was a car painting. It was the sky and the distant mountains that compelled me to paint this scene, and I really worked at keeping the edges soft to capture the mood of the day.


  1. I love the warm sky Liz! Do you keep a special easel box for the car? A friend of mine rigged her box up for car painting with some plastic plumbing pipe. It works really well. Seems you sent your snowstorm north, the farmers are happy!

  2. I am so enjoying your plein air paintings!! I love the warmth in this one—so peaceful. Thanks for the inspiration!!

  3. Love that sky, juicy colors. This is so much fun. Thank you!

  4. My pochade box is quite portable Tracey, so it works well in the car as well as in the field. I travel with all my gear always in the car (for the duration of this project) so I can stop and paint whenever something catches my eye.
