Foggy Mountain

It wasn't quite raining yesterday morning, but it was awfully damp. I was not willing to skip plein air painting again though. I also realized that if the weather held, I'd be able to call my painting Foggy Mountain, in a sort of homage to recently departed Earl Scruggs. So here. I believe you can see the dampness in the view and on the paper. There are some actual rain spots. I liked some of the effects and played them up with my spray bottle.

This is a California Live Oak at the Cobb Estate in Altadena.


  1. Barbara...I love the effect you got on this painting. It certainly looks foggy. Good job.

  2. Yes Barbara, you achieved a very perfect foggy day, can feel the dampness! Great job!

  3. Thank you both very much for your encouragement on my painting. The cold damp weather is long gone now.

  4. Hi, Barbara,
    I love this work that shows an foggy image very well. Congrats!!
    Cheers, Sadami
