Red by the Vulture

Red by the Vulture____6x8 oil sketch on canvas panel__$150
Today I traveled from Wickenburg, AZ to Prescott, AZ.
Last night I stayed with a friend in Wickenburg, and we went to the Vulture Peak Trail with a group of her buddies and watched the sunset and then the moonrise. I painted BOTH...FAST!!!...while the gang drank wine, and ate chocolate and beat on drums... Here is the sunset part...looking east where the moon would be rising. Right when the sun went down, it turned the tops of the mountains BLOOD RED! It was too good to pass up, so I altered the painting ON THE SPOT!
I will be teaching some of these techniques for grabbing color fast and getting the impression down quickly. The workshop is in Fredericksburg, TX, June 14 - 16, with an extra optinal day of painting on the the art school for details
