Sierra Landscape Painting Workshop

Here are some pictures from my landscape painting workshop in the Sierra's. We made the town of June Lake our base camp and each day went out to paint a different location between Yosemite and Mammoth Lakes. We all had a great time, great weather and some amazing subjects to paint.

Painting a waterfall in Lee Vining Canyon

An Aspen grove in Lee Vining Canyon.

I had Bartche Miller from the Mono Lake Committee come give an amazing talk on the geology and natural history of the Sierra Nevada.

Ellery Lake and Ellery Bowl.

Painting on the shore of Lake George. Because of the record snowfall this year there was still a huge amount of snow on the ground above 9000 ft. Some of the lakes I was planning on taking the group were still frozen over and under 8 feet of snow and probably wont be open till the end of July.
Mono county is one of the least populated counties in California, there are no cities nearby to cause light pollution, this makes for an amazing night sky.

After a day of painting we went down to South Tufa at Mono Lake to watch the sunset. Cody was the only one with the energy to pull off another painting.

After the last day of the workshop we relaxed with some wine at hilltop hotsprings.

My workshop demos.
