This is a 6x9" gouache plein air painting. I painted at Firehole River at one of the turnouts in #Yellowstone. It was so cold here (29°F!) That my paint brush and tin can had ice forming in it. I only lasted 20 minutes and had to go back inside because my hands were going numb. I finished the rest at the inn.
Also, this is my James Gurney's easel that my high school woodshop teacher, Mr. Hogan, and I made this last summer. For this trip I used Mike Hernandez's advice and just put the paint straight on a wet paper towel (he uses a sponge) and painted on my lid. Was quick to set up.
