Tecolote Canyon from Quillan

This was painted on location a couple of weeks ago. It was a terrific morning for painting and a fantastic view of Tecolote Canyon with USD peeking through the winding hillsides. Christina and I painted very different interpretations of the scenes in front of us, although we stood only feet away from each other- funny how that happens. So much about a painting is a personal story of the artist. That's part of the fun! This painting felt like a struggle while I was out there- but I'm really happy with the way it turned out and I can't wait to head back and try another!
