Plein Air In The Mountains

Took a little trip last weekend to the west coast of Canada. Absolutely breathtaking, and my first chance to paint plein air in the mountains. The painting on top is oil...had to work quickly because my paint actually started to freeze out there (I froze too)! The smaller sketches are from life, but done on the Nintendo DS, while looking out the window.
BTW, I've been posting some of my DS sketches in the Colors! Gallery
where you can also view playbacks of each one.

Oooooooooooooooh the brush strokes! They're so...I don't know. Loose? But they come together so -well- in the overall paintings.

What a gorgeous landscape to paint. I'm jealous now! It's so hot here, I'd like snow!

PS: It is ALL YOUR FAULT I have now painted Batman, by the way. :P

I'm in love with your brush strokes for those pine trees man. Sweet job on the top piece.

I hope this doesn't insult you, but it reminded me when I was a child watching Bob Ross painting branches and leafs with a flick of the wrist.

hahaha, thanks Shou. I guess my trees do look a little like 'happy trees'.

What's this? Painting on the DS? I haven't heard of that til now. I think I just found my excuse to buy one. Painting from within a warm vehicle doesn't sound too bad either. Nice job.
