Plein Air in Redlands

Hubby Travis biked and I painted yesterday just outside of Redlands CA. While Travis rode 100 miles around Big Bear, I found a couple spots that appealed.  The first, over the valley through some hills with two lone pine trees.  It was early morning – sun was still below the mountains.  No sooner did I get set up, than “boing” up popped the sun – right on my back!  Pretty bright on the canvas.  I wasn’t there long!  Second spot was a bit down the hill.  I loved the patterns the darks and bright yellows made.  Then, to top it off, a bunch of bikers rode by – so of course, I had to put one in.  Think these need work!
