|Sandia Mountains, Morning View|
June 1, 2011: Seven of the Hilltown Plein Air Painters traveled to Albuquerque NM to visit Karin Cook, formerly of Worthington, MA.
These five plein air sketches were done in the early mornings, at about 6000 feet, in the High Desert areas surrounding the Sandia Mountains with a palette knife on 9x12 canvas covered hardboard. In the early morning the mountains were cast in blue. As the day went on, the canyons and cliffs took shape.
The New Mexican sun was very bright, and the temperatures in the high 80's and low 90's.
The light changed quickly and within an hour we would find ourselves looking at an entirely different set of shapes and colors.
