Still lifes / Plein airs

With the shorter days it is getting harder to get out after work, so I have been setting up still lifes. Here are two I did this past week. 

Sharon and I ended up at Saw Mill Ponds again today. We walked in a bit further to this spot. 

The air was much clearer today so I was able to see and paint the snow in the mountains. The biggest snow field is Arapaho glacier nestled in between north and south Arapaho peaks.

Weds. night figure.

I am going back packing in Utah next weekend and in preparation, found this cool little water color kit. The oils are way too heavy to take back packing. These are my first two paintings with the new kit. It should be perfect for my trip.
