A Plein Air piece
I painted this 6 x 8 oil in the company of my good friend Garry Harris. We were advised not to go out at this time of the day as the temperature was above 30 Celcius and the humidity was quite high but I am probably a little stubborn so we sat on top of a lovely butte and painted to our hearts delight. There were turkey vultures and red tailed hawks screaming at us from above and the sun was scorching but it was all worth it. Garry did a nice little sketch that he was quite pleased with. This is looking south by south west.
