The next morning, we parked at the town pubic landing and I painted the rainy cloudy mist settling into the lake. It was still on and off raining and very foggy. I’ve never been to Rangely before, so I wasn’t familiar with the mountains. As the clouds came in and out, obstructing different peaks, I kept getting confused because I would paint a mountain, and then it would disappear when I looked up! Painting outside can really be a minute to minute thing.
It wasn’t summery-sunny, but rain and fog make for glorious greys, which I wanted to capture here.
