Thank you, Dennis! I really appreciate your reading this post and taking the time to look at my painting.

I took this photo in the light that the original photo was taken - horizontal California evening light. The blues are really more purple, but I had to pick one.  When it's done I will try to get a better photo.

I was just hoping that the sand was looking like sand and not snow. I still need to put more texture in, so that's next.

I seem to recall a Lemke Dome in the park. Any connection?

Gorgeous, Alice! Your mother will be thrilled.

BTW--I have received the Tony Couch book that I ordered from him, and am looking forward to some quiet time (after Christmas?) to be able to study it.

Thanks, again, everyone.  It's really tough to put up your work here, but I think it was worthwhile. 

Sue - you are going to learn so much from Tony's book! If you memorize the keys and the principles, your work will jump up many levels.  I decided I was too old to take my time messing around, so I'm reading many different books as well as practicing what I learned on our lessons here.  I'm glad Dennis doesn't mind if we don't copy his exactly.

Bryce, there is a Lembert Dome in Tuolumne Meadows, no relation.

Fencepost (I don't know your name) I was thinking I would do that.

Since you like Yosemite, I will have to post some pictures of me climbing on ElCap and Lembert, 25yrs ago.  The view from Lembert is quite amazing.  I am not yet at the level needed to paint it. I attempted ie failed similar location called idyllwild So California, Tahquitz rocks. You are doing great!

Perfect Alice, the tree removal team is allowing my eye to travel the subject without conflict now.  You captured the peace and serenity of the spot! :clap:

 :thankyou: To everybody!  Final shot of the picture before I mount it and wrap it up.  I now owe my husband a painting as he really wants to keep this one.

Stunning painting, Alice!   :smitten:


You gonna do another one like this for hubby???  I don't blame him for being jealous of the new owner.
