Plein-air studies of Chimney Beach, north east shore of Lake Tahoe. (Pencil on paper, and oil on canvas panel. 9" x 12".) The drawing was done first, then transferred onto a canvas panel. I was just focusing on colors and values at the painting phase. They were done this past summer. We had a huge infestation of yellow jackets this year. It was really hard to focus on my task, working along with them!
