By the time I did this painting last May we had been painting for a few days and I was really enjoying the colours and shapes of the landscape so I was more comfortable going a bit bigger en plein air. We found these lovely vistas of Ashcroft and the valley from a side road. It was a VERY hot afternoon and the only way for me to be able to paint was to be in the shade. Thankfully we had taken a gazebo/tent and we made very good use of it. It was 4 of us under it trying to stay out of the sun, I wouldn't have been able to do it otherwise!!

Cuando hice este cuadro este Mayo pasado ya hacía varios días que estabamos pintando y yo estaba disfrutando mucho de los colores y formas del paisaje, por eso probé de hacer un cuadro mas grande al aire libre. Habíamos encontrado este lugar en una calle en la montaña que tenía vistas del valle y la ciudad de Ashcroft.  Hacía MUCHO calor ese día y para mi estar en la sombra era la única forma. Por suerte habíamos llevado un gazebo y lo usamos mucho! Eramos 4 abajo escondiendonos del sol, yo no podría haber estado todo el día al sol sin eso!
