Just got back from a couple days up north. I forgot my camera, so I'm just going off what I remember it looking like. It was so pretty - I think it'd be fun to go up there and paint. I did some little sketches while out hiking - I might scan those at some point. The first is from when the sun was setting on the way from the Desolation Wilderness to Silver Lake. The second is very loosely based on that giant rock at Morrow Bay on the central coast. That thing is really cool.

There's a whole story with Miss Patty now. I won't get into it. You may remember I posted Miss Patty's Home for Wayward Dogs a while ago (or maybe you don't). Well, I think the city she lives in kind of sucks - it's grey and cold and in the mountains. But not fun mountains that you can ski and hike on. Crappy mountains that block in the town so everything is close and grubby. So here's Miss Patty out for a walk in town. Mostly as a color study. Did I go overboard on the textures? Probably. But I liked it because when I made it black and white and upped the curves it looked like bad xerox. Apparently bad xerox is an aesthetic I'm into now?
