Bill Cone Pastel Class!

This July I was lucky enough to spend a week up the Sierra Buttes taking a plein air pastel class with Bill Cone. Bill was a great teacher and I learned so much more about color and light and how to capture it on paper. Plus, what more could you ask for then getting to paint all day, every day up in the mountains! We also had a terrific group of people, which made the week even better. Here's a small sampling of some of my paintings from the week. 










And, this last one I did at a lake near my house after I came home.



Finally, here's a photo of one of our painting locations. :)
