Painting Into the Sun En Plein Air
This is an acrylic en plein air painting looking over the Yolo Bypass (Fazio Bird Sanctuary). During the winter, excess water from the Sacramento and American Rivers are diverted into this huge lowland area. Even during the summer, a certain amount of water is in this area for all the birds. Anyway, a few weeks ago, I set up my Easy L and faced into the morning sun and haze. No umbrella set up as the sun in the east was still very low. I love fog, haze, smoke, and steam.
