Recently we did a 3-day drive into southern Alberta with camping gear and painting kit. Drove through one of the more dramatic thunderstorms I've seen in my life - lovely lightening show which went on for hours!
On the way out we stopped at the river near Hays. There's an old bridge a little way off the road, a perfect place to set up for painting:
Evening sky changing quickly, had to paint fast! Nice to get a little more practice painting water, which I still cannot get quite right although it seems there is some gradual improvement...
I really like the distant flats peeking through the trees. Camera couldn't catch the windy cloud-and-sun skies, but paint could!
