Finished my first Pike’s Peak plein air watercolor sketch, August 16, 2010

Morning Watch at Pike's Peak

This watercolor sketch will always hold special meaning for me.  It was my primary intention while vacationing in Colorado this year to do plein air watercolor, and to focus on mountains.  It just happens that my first attempt was of Pike’s Peak viewed from Garden of the Gods.  I had the privilege of painting alongside Carolye Asfahl of Colorado Springs, my student from my first year of teaching at Lamar High School, Arlington, Texas.  Carolye is a very gifted artist who has recently committed to doing watercolors en plein air. It is my genuine hope that she will start a blog soon and post her fabulous works.

This sketch was begun on location, and then tweaked yesterday while I finished my vacation in Lubbock, Texas.
