This is a scene I have gone back to again and again, trying and capture it. Yesterday morning was about 10ºF when I started and today was just a little better, at 20ºF. I came up with a plan to park my car in such a way that I could sit, partially inside, with easel just outside the door. Although my hands and knees took the brunt of it, I did fairly well cold wise. Not the same for the rest of it. Oil paint tends to get thicker when it's that cold and so did my medium. It was a challenge, but just being there watching the morning light coming through the canyon illuminating this area was worth it in the end.
