I took advantage of the finer weather to get out and paint outdoors (plein air) for the first time this season. I've sketched outdoors a few times but this is the first time I took the whole painting set up out. I decided to take out the pastels because acrylics can be difficult in our dry climate but I might give the acrylics a try later this week.
I set up at a trailhead on the Jordan River Parkway near where I live in Taylorsville, Utah. The parkway runs through the whole valley and is full of scenes ripe for the "canvas". I took a couple short live videos on my Facebook page.
