Sunday morning plein-air painting

 Went out this morning at dawn to see if I could find any color left on the trees. I figured the orange light at dawn would enhance any color still around. With the temperature at 35 degrees I planned on painting inside the truck so I only brought the cigar box setup.

The deer kept my attention until the sun rose to where it started lighting the landscape.

After searching a little I settled on this spot. It afforded me a good view of the trees in front of me.

This is the cigar box setup that fits on the seat right next to me. A piece of foamcore acts as a table top for the setup.

This is the finished painting done in about 50 minutes. Its a 6"x8" panel.
