Tumbledown Plein Air

I finally wrenched myself out of bed today, loaded up my gear and went outside to paint.  The only goof I made was not packing the bug spray.  I am not sure how many times I have attempted to paint Tumbledown Mountain, but this is the first time I have done it plein air and I feel pretty good about it.

There are a few peaks that are a bit sharp, but I am making progress outside.  A wide brim hat and no sunglasses help tremendously with the colors.   I am afraid I really do need some more pastels however, as I had a hard time with the greens...and some bug dope!

Back to painting after a week in Acadia.  I did get some sketches done, but not enough.
